PARIS. April 83.— "In Belgium." said 
the official communication Issued by the 
War atjtce tonight, "the enemy launch- 
ed this morning several attacks at 
various points along our front, but 
these were completely repulsed by- our 
fire. Some enemy groups which suc- 
ceeded in penetrating our advanced 
elements were driven out immediately 
after a hand-tb-hantl engagement. The 
Germans left prisoners In our hands. 

"Between the Somme and tne utse 
our batteries effectively shelled the 
enemy organisations. Between the 
Aisne and the Chemln des Dames we 
made fresh progress during the day. 
North of Sancy the artillery fighting 
was particularly lively in the seetor of 
Hurtebtee form. Intermittent artillery 
actions occurred on the rest of the 

"On April SI our pilots fought a num- 
ber of aerial engagements, six enemy 
airplanes being brought damn. One of 
our groups, composed of fourteen ma- 
chines, last night dropped 1.740 kilos of 
projectiles on the railway stations and 
camps in the valley of the Aisne. 

The Belgian communication says: "At

Spirited righting 

The text of the report follows: 

"There was very active artillery 
fighting last night south of St. Quentin 
and between Solseons and n helms.

bombardment was followed by prepara- 
tions to attack. Our batterlee replied 
effectively and the enemy was not able 
to launch the attack. 

"In the Champagne German troops at 
t o'clock yesterday evening directed a 
strong attack against the salient north- 
east of Mont Hault. It was broken up 
by our artillery and machine gun fire. 
The enemy renewed his efforts during 
the night on the ridges which we hold 
before Moronvlllers. The fighting waa 
.very spirited at seme points, resulting 
everywhere to our advantage. 

"Bast of St. Mlhtel and In the Woevre 
we repulsed two surprise attacks made 
by strong enemy detachments, one In 
the Allly Wood and the other against 
the Calonno trench. In the Vosgeo an 
enemy attack south of the Ste. Marie 
Pass waa without success." 

BERLIN, April 99. — The war efCee 
communication Issued tonight says: 

"On the battlefield of Arras todav the 
aew Kngllsh assault broke down with- 
out success under very heavy enemy 
losses. On tho Aisne and In Champagne 
there have been artillery duels at Inter-

LONDON. April 9ft. — Correspondents 
at British headquarters la France con- 
cur la statements that the battle which 
haa been resumed at Arras- la much 
Brroer than whew It began. The Ger- 
mans, they say. ware fully prepared for 
Its renewal, and are being stimulated to 
oafrefae resistance by their officers. 
One of the correspoedeata as s arts that 

It Is one of the most difficult battles of 
the whole war. 

The Germans, by frantic work, the 
correspondent adds, have constructed 
numerous trenches and machine gun 
pits, not in a definite line, but strewn 
everywhere In apparent disorder, as if 
each position had been selected by ac- 
cident by some of the Germans. An- 
other correspondent writes: 

Th« baiti* ta extremely hard for our 

men. It is a battle to the death. So 
far all is vague. Fighting Is in prog- 
ress at all points attained by our 
troops, and there is an ebb and flow in 
the battle. Our men were beaten back 
for a while by the Intensity of the fire, 
but they are attacking again and again 
going forward. 

Almost all the fighting, It seems. Is 
being done by Kngllsh and Scottish 
troops. It Is said that the casualties 
of the Germans have been very severe 
'and those of the British are moderate. 
Inflicted ^largely by machine guns and 
shrapnel, and not of a serious character. 

Estimates of the prisoners vary. One 
correspondent says the first day's pris- 
oners amounted to not less than 2,000. 
The captures of guns are mentioned 
without an estimate of their number be- 
ing given. 


First Part of Seven Billion Dol- 
lar Bond Issue to Be So Util- 
ized—Other Allies Also to 
Be Aided. 

WASHINGTON. April 28— The first 
American loan to the Allied nations 
will go to Great Britain. Tbe amount 
and other details probably will be made 
public by Secretary McAdoo within a 
few days. 

Whatever the sum, the amount will 
be available out of the proceeds of the 
9Moo.000.000 bond issue soon to be 
offered. fo. the .nubjtc. f which 93,000,- 
000,000 will be lent to the Allies. 

■Announcement to this effect waa 
made, tonight at the Treasury Depart- 
ment after a day crowded with confer- 
ences between Secretary McAdoo, Fed- 
eral reserve board officials, American 
hankers and bond dealers and official 
representatives of Great Britain and 

Another development was the an- 
nouncement that the slse of the first 
issue ef bonds authorised under tha 
97.000.000,000 war finance measure will 
depend largely upon the immediate 
needs of the Allies. Reports as to 
these have not been received In detail. 

The entire seven billion of author- 
ised bonds will not be offered In one 
lump sum. according to present tenta- 
tive plana, but probably will be called 
for In several instalments of Issues, 
By this course. It le believed that fi- 
nancial disturbances which might result 
were the country railed upon to absorb 
the whole Issue, will be averted. 

In making the loan the United States 
will accept British bondn bearing the 
>H per cent Interest as security. The 
Interest payments upon them — at a 
grate considerably lower than that which 
Great Britain haa had to pay for re- 
cent borrowings— will balance the pay- 
ments to holders of the American 
bonds. A similar course would be fol- 
lowed In making loans to other Al- 
lied nations. 

Domestic phases of the forthcoming 
Issue were dtacussed today by Secre- 
tary McAdoo with a delegation from 
the Bankers* Investment ' Association, 
headed by Henry L. Stewart, of Chi- 
cago. Mr. Stewart places bis services 
at hla disposal. 

Belated subscriptions to tho 9900.- 
090,900 Issue of treasury certificates, 
the first Issue under the war finance 
measure, continue to swell the already 
large over-subscription. It la likely 
that tha original 9990.000.099 Issue will 
be extended to cover the full amount of 
subscriptions offered by the bsnks.

The conferences so far, with the en- 
thusiasm that the people of the capital 
have shown and the courtesies and cor- 
dialities extended by the officials, have 
taken the British commission by sur- 
prise. Mr. Balfour, after three-quarter's 
of an hour's conversation with Presi- 
dent Wilson, remarked enthusiastically 
that his trip had- been Justified by that 
meeting alone. All during the day, mem- 
bers of the commission exclaimed over 
the warmth of the welcome. 

While no formal negotiations were 
entered Into today, the preliminary con- 
ferences on nil hands are stated not to

LONDON. April 29.— Richard Bernard

ant of tho Royal FaeUeer*. 


Increased taxation and collection of 
arrears which are expected to produce 
an additional 93,924,000 in revenue and 
a decrease in current outlays will, ac- 
cording to the figures submitted by 
Premier Brewster this afternoon in his 
budget speech permit the Province for 
the first time in years to more than 
meet necessary outlays, out of revenue. 
The anticipated revenue Is placed at 
99,863.325.13, and the expenditure on 
current account at 99.768,979.30. In 
addition to this outlay there must be 
expenditure on capital account of 
13 , 032,88* . Tbe- arose- outlay , there- 
fore, for the coming year will be $10,- 

The sur-tax on existing sources of 
revenue, together with new taxes to 
be levied, are expected to bring in the 
following amounts: Real property, 
$400,000; personal property tax. 9300.- 
000; wild, coal and timber land tax, 
$650. ood; Income tax, $1,090,000; tax on 
amusement tickets, 9100,000; poll tax, 
9150,000;. sur-tax on succession duties, 
$200,000. Under the above heads the 
revenue now being derived amounts to 
$2,035,000 and with the increase due to 
increased taxes and the effort that will 
be made to get in about one million of 
arrears the increase over last year's 
receipts will chiefly be due. 

Premier Brewster intimated that a 
thorough reorganization of the financial 
system of the Government would be 
made along lines recommended by tho 
auditors, Messrs. Brice, Waterhouse & 
Company, it was the Intention later 
to create a tax commission to go fully 
into the whole matter on a scientific 
basis and under the scheme of reorgan- 
isation a comptroller-general would be 
appointed with a purchasing agent and 
other needed heads of various branches, 
but such reorganization would not re- 
quire the appointment of additional 
civil servants, the present staff being 
about sufficient. 

Mo Boom for Politics 

Premier Brewster went fully into the 
whole financial position of the Prov- 
ince, stating Chat he had no desire to 
Interject the political element but 
rather to deal with the matter from the 
standpoint of cool business. He quot- 
ed from the report of the auditors as 
of November 30 last. The full balance 
sheet for the fiscal year ended March 
31, he said, would later be submitted 
when completed. Owing to the short 
time that had been at the disposal of 
the Government since taking office on 
November 29 last there had not been 
possible that complete Investigation 
Info the various departments that 
would be possible during the coming 
recess, when further reductions would 
be possible effecting still further cur- 
tailment in the estimated outlays. 

The Premier made it clear that the 
Government had adopted as its fixed 
policy the living within Its income and 
that no longer would the policy of bor- 
rowing to meet deficits be resorted to. 
The Government, he believed, had ex- 
ercised great courage in Increasing tax- 
ation In the present time of stress 
when the people were giving so much 
to the cause of Empire, but he be- 
lieved that tho Just burdsns of tho 
Province must be met, and while In- 
creased taxation might work some 
hardship the exigencies of the situa- 
tion demanded it. The people, he felt 
confident, would recognise that only on 
such a businesslike basis could the af- 
fairs of the Province be conducted. 





COPENHAGEN, via London. April 
S3. — The reports of the Russo-Oerman 
Socialists' formulas for peace on a 
basis of no annexations or indemni- 
ties has unloosed a wild storm of dis- 
cussion in Germany over peace terms. 

Tbe pan-Germans are showing no 
disposition to abate from their de- 
mands despite the Indications that the 
Government is inclined to yield to a 
certain extent to the pressure of Aus- 
tria and the home Socialists. 

The National Liberal party of West- 
phalia, the home of big industries, 
for example, haa unanimously passed a 
resolution demanding an Indemnity for 
financial sacrifices and increasea in 
territory, east and wast and overseas. 
The resolution demands, partlcuslrly. 
In view of the Russian revolution, an 
extension of Germany's frontiers east- 
ward in order to obtain lands for Ger- 
man colonization. 

President's Mileage for 

PARIS. April 23. — Upward of 300,- 
000 copies of President Wilson's war 
address to Congress are to be dropped 
over the German lines by French and 
American aviators. The text of tbe 
message, translated Into German, has 
been delivered by the printers, and 
now is ready for distribution. The 
dropping of the message Is the result 
of an agreement between the French 
and American Governments. 

Admissions Now Made by 
Newspapers of Berlin and 
Other Cities Show Them to 
Have Been Widespread. 

Tn giving a general review of the 
financial situation of the Province the 
Premier pointed to the fact that the 
Government had taken Office on No- 
vember 29, but owing to the necessity 
of the by-elections and the unfortunate 
death of the former Minister of Fi- 
nance it had been greatly handicapped 
by lack of time In preparing a com- 
prehensive digest of the fineness. He 
stated he waa not advancing any ex- 
cuses, but merely showing some of the 
disabilities under which tbe Govern- 
ment bad had to work. Ho believed 
the budget, as presented to the Legis- 
lature, .was based on common sense, 
would show ths true conditions and 
would receive tbe support of those 
who no longer desired to see continued 
a policy of expenditure greatly In ex- 
cess of revenue. It waa no purpose 
of his to enter Into a criticism of tho 
financial policy of ths lata administra- 
tion. Such would serve no good pur- 
pose and might engender feelings det- 
rimental to the public welfare. Rather 
should the position be faced with cool 
business Judgment 

The Government. Premier Brewster 
stated, had decided on taking office 
that Its affairs should be conducted 
along the same lines as those adopted 
by all well-managed private concerns. 
He recognised that soms held . that 
such was not possible with a Govern- 
ment. Perhaps time would tall but nt 
any rata It waa the determination of 
the Government to. aa far aa possible. 
have the affairs of tha Province so

COPENHAGEN. April 23— Additional 
light Is gradually being thrown upon 
the extent of the recent strikes In Ber- 
lin by Items appearing In the Berlin 
newspapers. The Vorwaerts, which 
previously denied explicitly, with other 
Berlin newspapers, that the big muni- 
tions centre of Bpandau, near Berlin, 
was affected by the strike, printed the 
following in Monday's edition: 

"The lathe operators at Spandau, who 
are on strike, have decided to return 
to work. The big munition factories 
at Spandan are again working In full 
force Strikes at the German munition 
factories at Ludwlg Loewe (an Im- 
portant establishment not previously 
mentioned) are ended. The Borsig 
plant is again in full operation,' sub- 
stitutes having been found for the wo- 
men operatives not reporting." 

Thus the strikes st Spandau, not- 
withstanding the denials of their ex- 
istence, lasted for a full week. 

The Leiptlc newspapers are also more 
communicative. They say the strike of 
the workers in munitions factories has 
ended. The employers conceded a re- 
duction in the weekly hoars from 36 
and 60 to 52 hours, and from five to 
seven per cent increase In wages. The 
newspapers added that a deputation 
has presented political demands to the 

An American who has- Just arrived 
here from Hamburg, says that Ham- 
burg last week was nffected by the 
same strike movement as Berlin. A 
big demonstatlon led to lavish promises 
by the authorities and even to the 
supenslon of the card system for the 
day, during which it waa poaslbls to 
buy bread, and as far s* available, po- 
tatoes. Now It Is almost Impossible, 
according to this American, to obtain 
these necessaries even on cards. 

This American saw Albert Ballin, 
director-general of the Hamburg-Am-

thorities, and confirms ths report that

FRANCE, via London, April 93. — (From 
a Staff Correspondent of the Associated 
Press). — The battle of Arras, which has 
been smoldering for a week past 
burst Into flaming fury again today, and 
Is still raging tonight, with some of the 
severest fighting of the war In prog- 
ress. The sky le alight for miles with 
the flashes of guns, with star shells 
that spread a moonlight paleness over 
the battlefield, and with varl-colored 
rockets, which flash signals to the op- 
posing artillery. The cold east wind 
carries the echoes of the reverberating 
cannonade far back of the British lines. 

Tbe lighting today covered approx- 
imately an eight-mile front, from south 
of Vlmy ridge to a point well below 

At the north end of the attack the 
Brltlah swept over German fixed posi- 
tions running almost due south from 
Lens, capturing long sections of German 
positions In front of the Hlndenburg 
line and a great number of prisoners. 

More than 1,900 prisoners were count- 
ed In this sector late today, and others 
were still coming in. The largest num- 
ber of prisoners was from the 141st 
Pomeranians, who surrendered In hun- 
dreds after very brief resistance. A 
battery of field guna also was taken. 
Heaviest righting 

Between Gavrelle and Crolslllsa the 
heaviest lighting occurred along both 
banks of the Scarpe and around Monchy- 
le-Preux, where the Brltlah eastern ad- 
vance had projected a sharp salient Into 
the German lines. Monchy was taken In 
the first phase of the Arras battle after 
three days' fighting and has been held 
against desperate counter-attacks. The 
Germans always managed to cling to 
the slopes on either side of the hill on 
which Monchy-le-Preux is perched, this 
being tho highest point oaat of Arras 
and Vlmy, overlooking the great sroad 
Eastern plains of Northern. France. Ger- 
mans today were undoubtedly throwing 
their full force into their resistance 
along the Sedrpe. They had brought 
up strong reserves to oppose a further 
British advance, and had thrown In 
shores of new batteries of artillery. 

The fighting around Guemappe, due 
south of Monchy, was extremely bitter. 
The attacking Brltlah waves "went over" 
In the half grey light of dawn. It was 
still dark enough to make a fiery spec- 
tacle 'of the barrage whloh crept ahead 
of them — a veritable hall of exploding 
shells. Men who have been over sev- 
eral times under the protections of a 
barrage are apt to grow overconfident In 
following the sheila and occasionally 
get hit by bits flying back, although 
virtually every shell clearing ths way 
for the Infantry bursts forward with a 
great spray of shrapnel bullets. A mod- 
ern barrage aa set up by the British and 
French gunners Is a terrifying thing to 
face, and the Germans involuntarily 
breah before It, many of them seeking 
any dugouts available. 

•To »«gonts 

Today tn many porta of ths battle- 
front there were no more dugouts to 
use aa shelters, and the Germans had 
to stand and fight with the result that 
their heaualtlss ware higher and prison- 
ers fewer than those of other sections of 
tho IBM. 

The British advanced in nearly every 
Instance from mere half trenches, where 
they had been lying for the past week 
awaiting the bringing up of artillery 
and tho order to advance. The Ger- 
mans opposite them Had been digging 
at every possible opportunity, but they 
too were unable to construct more than 
sections of an unconnected trench, with 
machine guns concealed in every pos- 
sible place. In the villages which skirt- 
ed the battlefront It saemod as if every 
building contained machine gun crews. 
Many machine guns ware fired on the 
opposite bank of the River Scarpe, and 
It was a somewhat difficult task to dsal 
with them. 

Tho artillery preparation for today's 
attacks did not cover the ground, and 
did not equal la Intensity that of Easter 
Monday, when the first battle af Arras 
was launched. There had been what Is 
termed a deliberate bombardment for 
two days, but nothing like the mass of 
fire which was concentrated to blow the 
Germans out of their old positions op- 
posite the cathedral city. 

LONDON, April 9*.— Router's corre- 
spondent at British headquarters in

. LONDON, April 99.— A British air* 
ship on patrol duty is believed to have 
beep lost w|th all Us crew. An official 
statement tonight says: 

"One of His Majesty's airships left on 
patrol duty from an Eaat Coast air sta- 
tion on Saturday afternoon and haa not 
returned. Reports received state that; 
an airship was seen to descend la flsmsa 
in the 8 traits of Dover about noon the 
same day. An aeroplane or seaplane 
was seen In .the vicinity shortly before 
the occurrence, aad it Is believed the 
missing British airship has boon da* 
stroyed by hostile aircraft 

"Tha position given is a considerable 
distance from the area in which tho air- 
ship should have been working. It in 
probable that her engines had failed and 
that she drifted a long distance with the 
wind. An extensive search haa been 
made where the airship fell, and no 
trace of the crew nor any portion of tho 
ship waa found. It must be assumed] 
that all the crew are lost."

LONDON. April 11.— The British hos- 
pital snips Donegal and Lanfranc. with 
many wounded »board. nave been tor* 
pedoed without warning-. They woro 
•una on April 17. Of thoae on the 
Donegal, twenty-nine wounded men and 
twelve of the crow are mlaalng. The 
JUtnfranc carried Owm»n wounded aa 
well aa British. Of thoae aboard, nine- 
teen British and fifteen Germane are 
believed to have perished. 

The Secretary of the Admiralty la- 
sued the following statement today: 

"On the evening of April 17 the 
steamships Donegal and Lanfranc, while 
transporting wounded to British porta, 
were torpedoed without warning. The 
Donegal carried slightly wounded cases, 
all British. Of these, twenty-nine men. 
aa well aa twelve of the crew, are miss- 
ing and presumed drowned. 

"The Lanfranc. In addition to 114 
wounded British officers and men. car- 
ried l«7 wounded German prisoners, a 
medical personnel of fifty-two. and a 
crew of 121. Of these, the following; 
are missing and presumed drowned: 
Two wounded British officers, eleven 
wounded British of other ranks, one 
member of the Royal Army Medical 
Corps staff, five of the crew, five 
wounded Oerman officers and ten 
wounded Germans of other ranks. 

"One hundred and fifty-two wounded 
Oerman prisoners were rescued by 
British patrols at the Imminent risk of 
being themselves torpedoed. 
Cowardly FrmiUni 

LONDON, April 23.— The story of the 
sinking of the hospital ship Lanfranc 
will rank with the- undying histories of 
the Birkenhead and Tyndareua, aceord- 
lng to a British officer. The British 
soldiers stood at attention while the ship 
was slowly sinking beneath them. Their 
conduct was In marked contraat to that 
of the Prussian guardsmen aboard, who 
in the moment of danger rushed for the 

"The Lanfranc was attacked by a sub- 
marine about 7:30 o'clock Tuesday even- 
ing," said the officer. "Tho crash shook 
the liner violently, the explosion sending 
splinters of wood and glass flying in all 
directions. Within a few minutes the 
engines stopped and the vessel seemed 
to be sinking rapidly, but. to our sur- 
prise, she steadied herself and, after a 
while, remained motionless. We had 
aboard prisoners of the Prussian Guard 
and many British wounded, Including 
some serious cases. 

"The moment the torpedo struck the 
Prussians made a mad rush for the 
lifeboats. When they were ordered to 
await their turn many showed cowardice 
by dropping on their knees and implor- 
.ing pity. 

British Lad. Brave 

"The crew and staff went to their 
posts. The stretcher cases were low- 
ered first to the boats. Meanwhile, in 
response to distress calls, many vessels 
came hurrying to our assistance. Even 
while wounded and helpless Tommies 
< lay unaided in their cots the cowardly 
• prisoners made another attempt and 
managed to crowd into a lifeboat, which, 
however, toppled over directly as it was 
lowered. Then they fought with each 
other to reach another boat containing 
some gravely wounded. 

"I shall never forget, the behavior of 
our own lads. They tried to stand at 
attention, crippled as they were, while 
the graver cases were looked after. 
The crew and staff remained at their 
posts until the last man was taken off. 
Some doffed their garments and threw 
the mto those In the lifeboats wanting 
warm clothing, and In the midst of dis- 
tress and tragedy our men were able to 
strike up some popular ditties."

WASHINGTON. April II.— A member 
of the British War Commission today 
said twenty Oerman submarines and 
their orews were captured by the Brit- 
ish an April 10, the day before the party 

•'They were not exactly captured, 
either," aald the Englishman. "They 
had been searching for a destroyed base 
for days, and had bean suffering for 
food and water, and when our boats 
picked them up many of the men were 
on the verge of starvation. The orews 
were quite subdued and gladly surren- 

"England is getting a lot more sub- 
marines than you people In America 
have any Idea of. The submarine com- 
mandera are having a rough time of it 
Their bases are sought out and de- 

stroyed almost before they are estab- 
lished. The British know of certain 
bases, but they let them alone until 
the submarines are gone, then destroy 
them and leave the U-bo\ts In a hole."

WASHINGTON, April 11.— Sinking 
of an unarmed Allied freight steamer 
by a German submarine and the narrow 
escape of six •American cltlsens was to- 
day reported to the State Department. 
One lifeboat from the steamer, contain-

The sinking occurred April IS, after 
the submarine had fired a warning shot 
across the bow of the vessel and It had 
stopped Immediately. Neither gun nor 
wireless was carried by the steamer. 

The ship's crew took to ths boats 
with the shells bursting near them as 
they pulled away from the sinking ship.

Vote of 48 to 28 Against Re- 
moval of Duty on Farm 
Tractors — Discussion on 
Labor Department Matters. 


OTTAWA. April 11.— The flrst dlvi 
■Ion of the session took place today on 
a resolution moved by Mr. Archie Me- 
Coig. West Kent calling for the aboli- 
tion of the duty on farm tractors. He 
urged that the abolition of the duty 
would encourage production. 

Sir Thomas White declined to assent 
to the request of Mr. McColg. Farm 
tractors, he said, were being manufac- 
tured in Canada, and were the duty re- 
moved It would be necessary to also 
wipe out the duty on all materials en- 
tering into the construction of tractors. 
The vote was 41 to II, a Government 
majority of 10.

Labor member for Malsonneuve, intro- 
duced a discussion over the dismissal 
of Mr. Gerald Brown, Assistant Deputy 
Minister of Labor. 

Hon. T. W. Crowthers declared that 
Mr. Brown had overstayed a leave of 
absence and that he had been guilty of 
Insubordination and disloyalty to him- 
self. Hon. R. Lemleux defended Mr. 
Brown aa a capable official. He did not 
think the minister had given a proper 
reason for his dismissal. 

Mr. Crothers said that the position 
had been done away with, although a 
new official might be named to perform 
some of the duties which formerly fell 
to the lot of Mr. Brown. 

There was a long discussion on the 
high cost of living regulations. Oppo- 
sition members claimed that they had 
been framed to enable the Government 
to shirk responsibility. 

Mr. Crothers dsnled this, maintaining 
that under the regulations good results 
had been accomplished, and more would

Almost tha only remark that wa foal 
called upon to make In commenting 
upon Mr. Brewater'a Budget Hpeech la 
that, aa It appaara to ba equal to tha 
necessities of the hour, it will pass. Wa 
art (lad to observe that be haa avoid* 
ad" tha extreme expressions of opinion 
hitherto employed by him In referring 
to the financial poaltlon of the' Prov- 
ince. We have alwaya thought that he 
wont to lengths In bla treatment of thta 
subject which were not warranted by 
tha facta of the case. He seemed to 
feel little or no confidence la the fu- 
ture of the country. Though we were 
disposed to attribute this In very great 

Judging from the number of lettera 
wa ara recelvlng«*beut the efficacy or 
otherwise of vaccination, considerable 
doubt exists about It being a specific 
against disease. Owing to tha measles 
epidemic In the city and Isolated cases 
of smallpox elsewhere in tba Province. 
there is some talk of making vaccina- 
tion compulsory, but there la hesitation 
about how far It la advisable to so la 
this direction. The subject is an inter* 
estlng one and the discussion that has 
arisen on the matter appears to resolve 
Itself Into one of sanitation veraua vac- 
cination. If bad sanitation la to blame 
for the amount of disease prevalent this 
Spring, the city health department 
ahould overhaul its catechism and sea 
what remedies are desirable. In a town 
which enjoys such an equable climate, 
where high winds prevail and where 
dust la non-existent during the greater 
portion of tbe year, contagious diseases 
should be conspicuous' by their absence. 

financial affairs was baaed on tbe facta 
as existing on November -• last. For 
the fawt time In the history of tha 
Province could the Government table a 
report provided by auditors of the 
highest standing, a report that would 
set aside all doubt aa to tha present 
financial position of tha Province. Tbe 
recommendations of . the auditors would

407 89, which wore not readily collect- 
able aad In aoane Instances may prove 
finally quite uneollectable. 

Premier Brewster pointed to the fact 
that the Government had not been able 
to make that searching examination 
into the service as would permit of 
laying the results before the people 
at tha preaeat time. It had been found 
difficult to make reductions la staff 
without a greater knew ledge of the 
exact conditions, though many had been 
made. It was the anticipation of the 

will meet the 
mains to bo 

part to lack of experience in public af- 
fairs, it seemed nevertheleas to be re- 
gretted that he took so' very pessimistic 
aa outlook. The responsibility of oV 
floe haa Impressed upon him the neces- 
sity far taking a sober view of tha situ- 
ation and haa led blm to see that hie 
doty lias In a constructive, optimistic 
policy. To what extent the expedient 
to which he has determined to resort 
meet the exigencies of the case re- 
seen, but he thinks his 
plans ara adequate and we are not pre- 
pared to suggest they are not. 

Mr. Brewster lays considerable stress 
upon the fact that he Is not pressing 
anything of a scientific nature. Be 
this as It may. Our own Idea of .a 
scientific Budget ia that it ia not such 
an elaborate affair aa many people 
think. The Province requires a cer- 
tain amount of revenue every year to 
carry on Ha public affairs and It ought 
not bo be difficult to arrive at a plan 
whereby the income would be made to 
meet the expenditure. At tha same time 
wa are strongly of the opinion that the 
haphazard ayatem that haa prevailed 
in British Columbia aver sines It haa 
bean a province can be much Improved 
upon. But It would not be wise this 
year for the Oovernment to Inaugurate 
any change in this respect. Mr. Brew- 
ster speaks 'about appointing a per- 
manent revenue commission and Inti- 
mates that he may possibly do ao a* 
tha praaaat aesslon. We recommend him 
to go slowly. A permanent commission 
to deal with taxation and revenue In- 
volves many considerations. Sir Rich- 
ard McBrlde some yeara ago appointed 
a Royal Commission on taxation, which 
collected a great deal of uaeful infor- 
mation and made a number of uaeful 
• suggestions. Its work was not nearly 
aa uaeful as It might have been, due, 
perhaps, to the fact that the magnitude 
of the problem committed to the com- 
mlaalon was such that the then admin- 
istration ahrank from grappling with it. 
Mf. Brewster will be well advised If he 
would give this subject more thought 
than he can poaalbly have done up to 
the present, and before he decidea on 
what line of action he shall take. But 
■a we aald whan the present Govern- 
ment took office, the conditions existing* 
in the Province were new and were not 
«lmple. They muat be dealt with very 
promptly and in the simplest possible 
manner. The present Budget will, wa 
think, provide enough money to meet 
tha needs of the Province for the imme- 
diate future without making any undue 
burdens upon individuals, and therefore 
may be safely accepted. But this Is as 
far as we feel like going. Tbe great 
thing to be done la, to gat tba financial 
situation of the Province In satisfac- 
tory shape. We assume that Mr. Brew- 
star's plans meet with the approval of 
financial cirelee, and. If thla Is the case, 
It w ea ld be aa error to ba too critical at 
tha present Juncture. 

Evidently greater precautionary' meae- 
ures than any yet adopted are neces- 
sary. An Investigation into the cause or 
causes of ao much sickness should ba 
undertaken. It should cover especially 
school conditions, not only In the city, 
but also lp the adjacent municipalities, 
In addition the Provincial authorities 
should mike public a' statement on tha 
need or otherwise of vaccination. Tha 
differences of opinion on this subject 
ahould be, aa far' as possible, set at 
rest, and eorae definite policy pursued. 

The Provincial Oovernment should 
avoid aa far as possible the. practice of 
appointing commissions. Such a sys- 
tem looks like an evasion of responsi- 
bility on the part of the governing pow- 
ers. There is ample machinery exist- 
ent for the purpose of collecting taxes 
and Inquiring Into the Incidence of tax- 
ation. Any new body created, however 
Impartial it may be, will be tainted with 
the suspicion that it owed its origin to 
a dealre to find berths for political 

Mr. Brewster may have definite Ideas 
on efficient work that can be done by a 
Tax Commission, but In his speech of 
yesterday he left the public In the dark. 
The Province has had experience of how 
costly commissions prove and British 
Columbia Is so thinly populated that It 
ought not to be necessary to waste 
money In this way at a time when there 
la so much need for economy. There Is 
at present a Workmen's Compensation 
Commission. A Civil Service Commis- 
sion is promised. There are one or 
more judicial commissions to be ap- 
pointed. Now on top of all these comes 
the suggestion that a .permanent Taxa- 
tion Commission should be brought into 
being. There will have to be strong 
argumente advanced to prove that the 
work It Is proposed It should do cannot 
be dope equally well by the existing 
governmental machinery. 

German transports have sailed from 
Llbau for an unknown destination. The 
strength of Russia's new Oovernment 
may soon be put to the teat. 

The public will not quarrel with the 
proposal to put a tax on theatre tickets. 
The Oovernment estimates It will raise 
a sum of f 100,000 a year In this way. 
In our opinion tba revenue la more like- 
ly to be 1200.000. 

Germany's attacks on hospital ships 
Show that she baa abandoned all Idea 
af conciliating 1 neutral opinion any fur- 
ther. The truth is that an aha realises 
aha cannot win the war h«r vision has 
become blurred and she la striking out 


The Germane are tenaciously defend- 
ing every foot of ground against tbe 
British offensive, which was renewed 
yesterday north and south of the Scarpa 
Kirer. Obviously tbe retention of tha 
positions defending the French coal- 
fields is regarded as vital to the whole 
German front In northern France and 
Belgium. That would account for the 
violence of yesterday's counter-attacks.

We have heard many expressions of 
regret that Premier Brewster did aot 
have his Budget Hpeech In manuscript. 
Many points regarding the new taxa- 
tion, in which the public are keenly In- 
terested, will have to go uneanlaJped for 
the present 

There Is one Item of, new taxation to 
which we think exception will ba taken. 
That la the increased tax on wild land. 
The amount of arrears In taxation of 
thla character that already exist makes 
it difficult to understand how tha Gov- 
ernment proposes to Justify further Im- 


The Premier Is oa safe ground in bis 
proposal to regrada Incomes for tbe pur- 
pose Of taxation. Whatever Man at in 
view, we hops that it will take Into con- 
sideration tha continually rlatng cost 
of living and that oa thla account those 
who have small Incomes will got he al- 
lowed to aoffer. 

II seams necessary te remidd the mHV 
tary authorities in tha fiaeheet possible 
manner that they ara aot going tha 
light wa y a t i a t falsing she Canada De- 
f once Force. Thaw mast take the public 
more into their ■oaemiass. Thane who

how far tha military obligation Is go-

ment They ahoald bo* toed how local 
they are to reaaaJa "la camp during tha 

Government during the coming recess, 
to materially reduce the 'estimates or 
expeadlture In some departments. 

The Premier pointed to the expan- 
aslon which had taken place In tha 
Province. during the past few years in 
the outlying sections, resulting In an 
over-expansion In tbe Government ser- 
vice. Aa the anticipated settlement 
did not follow, the result had been that 
th a O oecr n mene- w as «o ft wit h ev very 
expensive administration, the expenses 
of which It Was . almost impossible to 
reduce without working a great .hard-, 
ablp on those who -settled " in the far 
places at tha request and solicitation 
of the late Government. Small returns 
were being • received from that ex- 
pensive machinery. 

"The Government." Premier Bre water 
stated "has exercised a great deal of 
courage in Increasing taxation especial- 
ly In thla time of stress, when the 
people of the Province are giving so 
magnificently to the great cause of the 
Empire. I admired the courage of 
Sir Richard McBrlde in 1903, when he 
increased taxes-. That increase looked 
like an honest effort to place the Pro- 
vince on a sound financial' basis. We 
believe the people win appreciate the 
Intention of the Oovernment, to just 
aa soon as it la possible, revise and 
lower the taxation in scientific man- 
ner, The present system cannot be 
considered scientific or modern In any 
respect. We hope to create a tax- 
commission to deal with the matter on 
a scientific basis." 

Proceeding to his review of the finan- 
cial situation. Premier Brewster point- 
ed to the fact that the public accounts 
for the year ended March 31, last year, 
showed that the exceaa of liabilities 
over assets was 111,192,907.78. On 
March 31, 1011, assets ahowed an ex- 
ceaa over liabilities of $1, 497,691. 35. 
From that year there had been an an- 
nual excess of expenditures over re- 
ceipts, so that thla year the liabilities 
exceeded assets by 114,782, 616.45. The 
bonded debt during that five-year 
period had Increased 19,104.868.55. On 
April 1. i9ii, the cash at the disposal 
of the treasury- was $1,474,387.74, and 
on March 31, 1916, It waa but 1720,- 
131.74 a reduction In caah account for 
tha five-year period of $7,754, 144. 4*. If 
to this latter amount was added the 
net increase In bonded Indebtedness the 
total amount epended In excess of re- 
ceipts for the period had been 

Old Methods Mast Oo 
If, said the Premier the Government 
continued that policy there would un- 
doubtedly result a very serious finan- 
cial condition for the Province. He 
considered the Oovernment had re- 
ceived a mandate from the people to 
change that old policy and get down 
to a business basis. During the com- 
ing fiscal year, for the first time In 
many yeara, the current revenue would 
take care of current outlays. The pub- 
lic accounta for the year ended March 
31, 1916, ahowed the excess of liabil- 
ities over ssaeta waa 93,698,708.37 and 
It was to be remembered that in that 
amount was not Included liabilities 
due or accruing due to the amount of 
1582,45.1.94, nor the mortgage liability 
on the Provincial Building. London, 
amounting to about 9300,000. The Pro- 
vince, the Premier atated, bad a rather 
expensive menage at London. Certain 
sinking fund. In addition, had not re- 
ceived its proper annual portions. 

C< 9> nuing the Premier pointed out 
that on March 81, 1916, the cash and 
revenue received in the preceding eight 
months had not been sufficient to meet 
requirements and It bad been neces- 
sary to Issue additional bonda to the 
amount ef 93.009,000. under the Loan 
Act. 1916. The p r oceeds of that loan 
and all the previous receipts were ex- 
pended In the eight months prior to 
November 30 laat leaving the Pro- 
vince 9S.e00.00© further In debt, end 
with current end accrued liabilities, in- 
cluding salaries, of ll.063.98J.68. Of 
•184.574.63 cash balance on November 
30, I1OO.099.37 represented a deposit 
which the Oovernment hsd In the Bank 
of Vancouver and as that Institution 
waa la liquidation, tbe remalndor, 184.- 
488. IS represented the amount of cash 
In the treasury and available for uae. 
The Government, the Premier believed. 
In view of these figures: had not 
started off with a very great dowry. 
Within two months it had to pay 
9913.939.14. These figures showed, be 
believed, the necessity for action to 
carry on business oa a different basis 
than la the past. 

Stating that he desired to towch on 
the qucetiea of extravagance aad te 
keep out political criticism. Premier 
BfcwatQr atated that while from March, 
1909. to March. 1916, tha revenue had 
Increased 106 per cent, tbe expenditures 
bad haeraaeed 838 per ceat No man In 
bla private business could carry on 
business oa that basis. Arrears af 
taxes so September 99. 1»16. heal ag- 
gregated gj.749,091. Si. aad unpaid taxes 
for 1919 totalled 9l.292.fOO.i9. In- 
cluded la these amounts were unpaid 
personal property and Income taxes 
totalling I3S6.703 and Of the 1919 taxes, 
•143.917. Included among the a ssets 
shown In the published ba l e nee Sheet of 
March tl. 1919, and by the treasury 
hooks af November 30, 1919. were Items 
which by 9-ebruery 39, 1911, had further 

Referring to the auditors' report, 
copies of which, ha promised, would be 
supplied to the members. Premier 
Brewster stated the Provincial accounts 
ss presented ana unity were complicated 
and did not set forth the true condi- 
tions. Tba auditors pointed to the 
necessity of analysing and classifying 
Items In detail and to the better super- 
vision of tha departmental accounts. 
Probably the greatest offender In the 
muddled departmental accounta waa the 
Land Department. It waa time that the 
old condition of affaire caaaed. The 
auditors called attention to the fact 
that tbe ayatem of thdt department was 
totally Inadequate. The Premier cited 
instances where cheques never entered 
had been found "kicking around" the 
department and of cases where money 
received bad never been credited, but 
left among the papers. Tha record pur- 
porting to show sales of town lots In 
which tha Government had an Intereat 
had not been written up for three yeara 
and there had been no systematic 
method of getting in amdtmts due. The. 
revenue of tbe Government, he believed, 
would be considerably augmented If a 
systematic effort were made to secure 
arrears of moneys due to the Govern- 
ment. S 

Touching upon the budget for the 
coming fiscal year the Premier pointed 
to the fact that revenue waa estimated 
at 99,998,839 and expenditures at 
•8.799,979 chargeable to Income. The 
Increase In revenue over the previous 
year waa estimated at 93,924,000, due 
to proposed Increased taxation. It could 
ba readily recognized that increased 
taxation would not make tbe Govern- 
ment very popular, but it was abso- 
lutely necessary that the Government 
should /live within its income, and the 
proposed Increases could - be defended, 
he believed. The Government could de- 
pend upon the common sense of the 
public to approve of that course. 

It waa argued by some, the Premier 
stated, that the Government should bor- 
row to meet deficiencies rather than in- 
crease taxation. Personally he did not 
think that course the proper one, espe- 

comptroller-genevml under 
be placed auditors, a purchasing agent, 
etc It would aat m ea n any large in- 
crease but could ha organised from the 
existing staff. 

In promising that the reports of the 
auditors on the affaire of the Province, 
the P.O.B.. and the Vnacouver and Bar- 
ren! Sewerage Board, would aoon ba 
tebled. he atated that, owing to the Im- 
possibility of securing any report from 
Agent-General. Messrs. Price. Water- 
house A Company bad been instructed, 
through that firm's London office, to 
mske an audit of the affaire of the 
agent-general's office at London. 

"In conclusion." said Premier Brew- 
ster, "there la every reason to hope 
that la the lumbering, mining, fishing 
and other industries of tbe Province, a 
decided end permanent Improvement is 
taking place. That we have, at this 
time, to increase the burden of taxation 
la regrettable, but. by taking a strong 
stand and Insisting that our expenditure 
shall he within our revenue, we be- 
lieve we will receive the support of all 
right-thinking people of the Province, 
and that by thla method we can bring 
about conditions within the next few 
yeara which will make for greater pro- 
duction, more extenalve development of 
our natural resources, and the creation 
of a condition, provlnclally, which will 
materially asalat us to better take care 
of those who, returning from the front, 
have to seek new lines of activities In 
order to become self-supporting mem- 
bers of society, and while It taken a 
considerable measure of courage to 
knowingly bring about the unpopularity 
which' muat follow the increase In our 
general taxation, we feel that the duty, 
having fallen upon us, we would be re- 
creant to our principles should we shirk 
the issue. We hsve, therefore, decided 
that the public interest demands that 
thla drastic action be taken In order 
that further and more detrimental ef- 
fects shall not follow."

daily when he considered the rate of 
discount the Province had been called 
upon to pay on money borrowed. It 
waa moat unwise to pile up a greater 
debt at an almost prohibitive price. 
The loan in 1914 coat 1 pfir cent in dis- 
count; that In 1916 coat 13.8 per cent, 
and that in 1918 cost 9:6 per cent. In- 
terest on the public debt ^aggregated 
• 1,986,000, and there was no myaterious 
source whence the Government could 
draw. The, people must pay, and there- 
fore it was Imperative that, even to the 
extent of doing some injustice, the Gov- 
ernment should Increase taxation. 
Sneomes stoat Pay 
Premier Brewster stated it was the 
aim of the Oovernment to reach out and 
touch those persons and incomes that 
could best bear the burden. At the 
present time large amounts were being 
taken out of the natural resources of 
the Province, especially in the mines, 
owing to the Increased coat of the 
metals. In 1909 a change was made 
whereby no tax was placed upon In- 
comes derived from the mines over 2 
per cent. The Government thought the 
fortunes being made out of the mines 
could bear a still larger tax. In tbe 
case of the canneries, where the tax 
was so much per case, .if incomea could 
stand it they should do so. • • • 

On the matter of the poll tax Pre- 
mier Brewster believed the present waa 
the time when It was important to real- 
ise ' the necessity for unusual forma of 
taxation. Under ordinary conditions he 
did not think tha poll tax was a scien- 
tific one, but there were those lp the 
Province who were not contributing any 
share. The Oovernment had seen fit to 
place the estimate .of the amount to be 
derived from the poll tax at 9160,000, 
to be placed upon those who do not pay 
a municipal or other tax. Another levy 
proposed waa a tax on amusement tick- 
ets. Those who could afford to go to 
amusement places could afford to pay a 
email tax in the intereat of the hoa- 
pltals or other institutions of similar 

Premier Brewater referred with satis- 
faction to the fact that the banks had 
readily asalated the Government, given 
It Juat treatment, and evinced a desire 
to see It get Its financial affairs on a 
aound basis. 

Referring in detail to the new esti- 
mates. Premier Brewater atated that 
there waa ahown a saving, over and 
above all disabilities to be faced by the 
Government, of •1.940.990. It was ne- 
cessary In the Interests of the Province 
that there ahould be a more scientific 
system of tax collection. There waa, 
for Instance, a great burden upon the 
people In connection with the school 
tax. It had been shown that In some 
districts the cost of collection had ex- 
ceeded the receipts; that in one case it 
had cost 17.000 to collect 94,000. It was 
the Intention of the Government to fully 
examine Into the matter. 

Most Sseoetve Value . 
While it was realized that nothing 
should be done to handicap the schools, 
that a high standard 'of education must 
be maintained, yet value for the money 
expended ahould be had. He pointed to 
the advisability of changing the preaent 
ayatem so that the end of the fiscal year 
would fall on November 80 In each year, 
thue obviating the present condition 
whereunder a Legislature was forced to 
deal with accounts a year old. He made 
It clear that because the people are con- 
tributing to the various war funds was 
no reason why they should not be called 
upon to meet their share of the burdens 
of the Province. The people of the 
Province had not baen niggardly In giv- 
ing to carry on the war. either in men 
or money. The atatement by the Pat- 
riotic Aid Fund showed that since tbe 
start of .the Provincial branch there had 
been contributed by the people of the 
Province, exclusive of the contribution 
by Vancouver, some 9 1.608. 000. a remark- 
able ehowing Indicating the spirit 
amongst those at home. 

Premier Brewster referred to the re- 
port of the auditors on the necessity of 
a thorough re-crganiaatlon of financial 
methods, ettiag tha existing department- 
al orerlapping. lack of any central con- 
trol and the decision of the Oovernment 
that there ahould bo a re-organlsatlon 
of the accounting branch, to the end that 
the present "go as you please" system 
might be eliminated. Such re-organlsa- 
tlon contemplated the appointment of a

Sir, — A few days ago there appeared 
in a Toronto newspaper, under the bead- 
ing of "Canadian Press Despatch," and 
of date New York, April 13th, a state- 
ment from which I quote: 

"A apeclal cable to The Herald from 
London, dated yesterday, saya: 

"The prospect of the early participa- 
tion of American troops fighting under 
the American flag on the western front 
haa caused tremendous enthusiasm 

"Already the nucleus of a force la at 
grips with the Prussians In France, it 
being estimated that 33,000 American 
citizens are fighting in the Canadian 
units. It Is surmlaed here that a re- 
quest will be made to obtain the release 
of the 32,000 trained fighters from the 
Canadian units to enable them to fight 
hereafter under their own flag. 

"The 'force could be atrengthened by 
the addition of about 10,000 regulars, to 
be sent from the United Statea army 
at once, thus forming a powerful army 
corps, which, in the forthcoming opera- 
tlona, would bear a part aa glorioua 
aa that borne by Field Marshal French's 
first gallant little expeditionary force." 
While not for a moment thinking of 
detracting In any way from tbe credit 
due to those American cttlsens who are 
gallantly assisting us, I think, In Jus- 
tice to our own men, the following 
facta should be made known: 

I had occasion to make speeches in 
the Senate towards the end of the laat 
session- of Parliament on recruiting and 
also on registration, and the figures I 
obtained in connection with the prepar- 
ing of these speeches were official in 
every Instance. 

Up to March 31st, 1916, out of a total 
of aome 300,000 enlistments, the for- 
eign born numbered 10,000; from this 
total of 10,000 there must be deducted 
Russians, French, Oreeka, Italians and 
other foreign reservists or patriots, who 
naturally preferred the facilities given 
in the Canadian army to thoae in their 
own distant forces, so probably not 
more than 6,000 of thla total were Am- 
ericana, and aa the proportion of native 
Canadians enlisting Increased after 
March. 1919, the outalde total of Amer- 
icana In our 400,000 men training in 
Canada and England, or lighting at the 
front, would be barely 7,600, with leas 
than half that number actually In 

In view of this, It la difficult to un- 
derstand why auch statements should 
be made, and I trust the press' of Can- 
ada will do Its beat to correct this er- 
roneous American Impression, more es- 
pecially aa I am told New York nepers 
the other day were sold on the streets 
to the cry of "Great American Victory 

at Vlmy."

Probably at no stage of the war has 
there boon such a need for men in the 
Canadian Engineers as at p r es en t. 
sJsMSB of this corps feel that the 
of Victoria and British Columbia 
orally rail to appreciate the extreme 
urgency for enlistment la this branch 
of the service. 

The work of the Engineers In the 
field, comprising aa It done everything 
pertaining to engineering and con- 
struction work, is probably greater at 
this time of such advances aa are now 
being made than la the earlier atagaa

felt that although British Columbia, 
through its representative, 6th Field 
Company, Canadian Engineers, with 
headquarters at North Vancouver, has 
sent forward overaeas, not only a 
large number of men, but a large 
number of capable men. still there are 
undoubtedly. In Victoria . and In the 
Province generally, a great many men 
who are possessed of ability such as 
Is required in the Canadian Engineers 
and if they will only realize the ex- 
treme need for their eervlces at the 
front, will come forward. 

Every man who has experience In 
engineering work, ^construction work, 
or who is a tradesman or mechanic, 
woodsman, miner, horseman or a gen- 
eral allround handy man can And a 
place In the Canadian Engineers. 
While giving the Empire the beataer- 
vice he can render through hla ability, 
he la also acquiring through the'traln- 
ing and work that he will handle, an 
experience which will be to him a 
valuable asset after the war. 

There may be men who will read 
this who in the earlier stages of the 
war have been rejected, hut if they 
will make application again to the re- 
cruiting office of the Canadian En- 
gineers. 60S Trounce Avenue or If they 
will write the recruiting officer at this 
address they may find it Is now pos- 
sible for them to be accepted. 

The opportunities for advancement 
In this branch of the service and tho 
scope for a man's ability is probably 
greater than In tny other branen of 
the service. It Is also pointed out that 
at the preaent time tho 6th Field Com- 
pany. Canadian Engineers, owing to 
considerable work In connection with 
military buildings In the Province, 
which are maintained by the Engineers, 
urgently require tradesmen for home 
service work. Carpenters, electricians 
and plumbers are particularly needed. 
Men who cannot pans the medical ex- 
amination for the overseas service can 
be taken on for thla work. 

There is no delay, as men who join 
the Canadian Engineers for overseas 
service as. st the present time, men 
leaving In drafts from British Colum- 
bia go practically direct overseas to

Vancouver's Moiafell During April. 
up to S o'clock on Saturday morning, 
«.7 inches of rain fell in Vancouver. 
This Is far In excess of the amount

British Colombia for several decades. 
The record for April was formerly held 
for that month in 1907, when 4.11

record which will not bo beaten for a

From early morning the "taggers" for 
tlte collection* made yesterday on be- 
half of the Military Y.M.C.A Fund were 
stationed at their allotted stations and 
throughout the day worked valiantly for 
the cause deserving of their sympathy. 
The blight Spring sunshine lured many 
•"hoppers out. and contributions were for 
the most part willingly dropped Into 
the collectors' boxes. The collection 
raaehed the splendid total of $2,100. 

About two hundred "taggers" were 
engaged In the work during the day 
and mention must be made of their 
eagerneaa to help on this as on many 
previous occasions. Many admiring re- 
marks were passed on the pretty armlets 
worn by the collectors, also on the motor 
tags, the unique design and workman- 
manahlp being the handiwork of Mrs. 
U. C. Hanlngton, who. with a bevy of 
able assistants, was responsible for this 
artistic work. The tags uaed also re- 
ceived favorable comment, the first lot 
being the attractive Maple Leaf pin 
bearing the word "Ypree," and these 
when disposed of were succeeded by 
novel pmpar tags, ordered at short no- 
tice from the Colonist Printing and 
Publishing Co. Altogether there were 
about 10,000 tag* leaned. Indicating the 
wide range of districts covered by these 
eager workers. Mr. G. W. Rogers, In 
practical sympathy with the undertak- 
ing, offered a prise of a box of his de- 
licioiia chocolates, the winner of which 
tma not been announced yet.

S*3cond Anniversary of Great 
Battle Observed in City 
Churches on Sunday — 
Graves of Heroes Decorated, 

Victoria churches on Sunday com- 
memorated the second anniversary of 
the second Battle of Ypree with spe- 
cial services. 

The Ypres service at Christ Church 
Cathedral at $ o'clock was attended by 
the Oath Battalion. which paraded 
from the new Drill Hall, Lieutenant- 
Governor Barnard and party, Premier 
Brewster. Admiral Storey, Col. Prior, 
returned soldiers ami men at the mili- 
tary convalescent hospitals who were 
brought Into the city in motor cars. 
All military and naval bodies were offi- 
cially represented. Hundreds of per- 
sons who were unable to get into the 
church stood outside while the service 
was in progress. • 

Dean Qualnton, who preached, told of 
bow the Canadians with Insufficient 
support fought "IT the CSerman hordes 
seeking to break through to Calais. 
The Dean said that If Calais hid been 
won by the Germans it would have 
proved disastrous to British transpor- 
tation across the Channel. The Rev.' 
F. A. P. Chadwlck, rector of St. John's, 
read the lesson and Bishop Schofleld; 
pronounced the blessing. The 5th Reg- 
iment band played the National An- 
them. Organist Watson the 'Dead 
March In Saul," and a bugler the "Last 
Poet" » 

Premier Brewster unveiled an honor 
roll of 122 names, said to be propor- 
tionately :the largeat 'Of any church In

First ConK'egatlonal Church. • The roll 
was executed hy Mr. Herbert Shepherd.

The Pine Knot, the newspaper which 
was first published by the Victoria 
draft for the 230th Forestry Batallon, 
has now become the official organ af 
the whole unit. It is still under the 
editorship of Sergt. C. H. Gibbons, of 
Victoria, and since the arrival of the 
staff at the Brockvllle, Ont., training 
base, where a printing press is avail- 
able, the little Journal has improved 
In every way and for newalnesa and 
style it probably has no peer among 
the military papers of Canada today.

If you want health 

yyq c an have it, by heeding Nature's laws. Keep the 
stomach Strang, the Liver active, the blood pure, and 
the bowels regular, and you will seldom be ill. Take 
good care of these organs, and at the first sign of 

you certainly need 

ttm help and relief of this wrjiW-farned remedy, to 
keep the body in health. They quickly establish nor- 
irjjffj cuudltkus, so the organs perform their functions 
as Nature irjitttfad. No other remedy win so surely 
the system, stimulate the liver, regulate 

t the general health as 


show themselves worthy of the sacrl 
flees of the heroes at Ypres by enlist- 
ing at once or taking up with all their 
energies some work of national Im- 

Hon. Mr. Brewster traced the devel- 
opment of the war from Its early 
stages, showing how, link by link, each 
battle was significant as so many 
stages determining the ultimate Issues 
of the war. He referred to the purt 
the Canadian boys had played in the 
great struggle. Although they were 
assembled that evening in the church 
to celebrate the second anniversary of 
Ypres, it was not with a sense or Jubi- 
lation, nor boasted glory, but to re- 
member those of our Allies and our 
Canadian soldiers particularly, that 
fresh courage and determination mlKht 
be imparted to them. "Today," said 
the Premier, "we can view that battle 
at Ypres In its right perspective, and 
now realize the Importance of that 
great struggle In Its relation to the 
destinies of the war, though It Is quite 
impossible to adequately conceive or 
describe Its significance and its bearing 
on the war generally. The lapse of 
time has- clarified the air and we can 
perceive the purpose and aim of . the 
great world struggle on the part of 
our Allies. The stakes are the moral 
government of the Whole world, the 
continuance of liberty in France, Bel- 

flum and Serbia; In freeing. Germany 
rom a blightlnv servitude to utterly 
false ideals — and protecting our own 
Dominion of Canada from those hideous 
barbarities and cruelties, which Ger- 
many, under the dominance of Prus- 
sian militarism, had inflicted upon their 
weaker neighbors. Victory by Germany 
would crush the very heart of France, 
the land of liberty and ideas, place all 
smaller states of Kurope— Holland, 
Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden 
and Switzerland under the heel of 
Prussia, and In the end substitute Her- 
man repression and excluslveness, for 
the open-handed, generous British rule 
over the myriads of the human race." 

Mrs. Robert Balrd nang Kipling's 
"Recessional." Mrs. Hiidson "Land of 
Hope and Glory." and anthems were 
given by the choir. "Che Rev. Charles 
Croucher. pastor of the churoh, said 
the British troops were displaying the 
same steadfastness and courage that 
had characterized them when they beat 
back Napoleon. In th(e afternoon there 
was a young people's rally in which 
Miss Kdith Hodgson and Miss Gwennle 
Hall gave a rcclbatlrth and reading. 
' Ex-alderman A. B. McNeill, took the 
place of Speaker Weat/t, who was called 
to Vancouver, and gAve the Ypres ora- 
tion at the First Presbyterian Church 
at the evening service. The Rev. J. O. 
Inkster spoke on Donald Hankey's 
"Student In Arms." Written to inter- 
pret the soldier to th* nation. The or- 
ganist, Mr. H. Charlbsworth, gave a 
recital before the senrlce: Mr. Vernon 
Smith rendered two/vjolln solos and 
Miss Isabelle McEwJan of Vancouver 
gave two solos. i 

Secretary McKay, 'of the Military 
Y.M.C.A. at the Willows, gave an ad- 
drees at the Emmanael Baptist Church, 
while the pastor, the Rev. William 
Stevenson preached on "The Value nf 
Service." At the First Baptist Church 
the Rev. P. Clifton Parker pictured 
the stirring deeds of the Canadian sol- 
diers at the front. 

The Rev. Dr. Leslie Clay, preaching 
at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 
urged the erection by the nation of a 
fitting memorial to the men who hav« 
fallen and provision made for the 
proper care of their families and those 
soldiers who come back. , 

At the Metropolitan Methodist the 
pastor the Rev. H. S. Osborne said the 
deeds at Ypres should stir Canadians 
to emulation. 

The Bth Regiment band concert at 
the Royal Victoria Theatre In the 
evening, under the Women's Canadian 
Club, resulted In 01S2 being raised for 
the work of the Military Y.M.C.A At 
least 100 persons were unable to get 
Into the theatre. Mrs. -J. Macdonald 
Fahey sang Handel's "I Know That Mv 
Redeemer LI vet h." Hamilton Gray's 
"Heavenly Song." and patriotic num- 
bers. Bandsman Haggard gave a solo 
on his great bass horn. 

Members of the Daughters of the 
Empire met at Rosa Bay Cemetery In 
the afternoon and decorated the graves 
of twenty-six men who died here In 
barracks before going to the front,

Perfect Tone 
Tone Control 

anal /' ■» ' U » 

THERE Is but one sound -reproducing instrument 
that possesses a tone worthy the prefix "per- 
fect." That instrument is the 

Columbia Grafonola 

Years of study and acoustic research 
were necessary to produce one of these 
new model Colurabias. Take the Colum- 
bia system of tone control, for instance. 
By its use, and any of the five different 
grades of Columbia needles, you can ob- 
tain a degree of sound modulation un- 
known in other makes. Then again, the | 
Columbia plays with utter fidelity to the 
original, and even in the softest passages 
the ear can detect not the slightest foreign 
sound due to motor or record. Contrast 
this with the noisy motor -and discordant 
scratchfngs of other instruments you 
have heard ! 

The Columbia hoe other point* of superiority which 
you should be f nmilinr with if you contemplate a

The vote for Premier's office carries 
an Item of $7,600, compared with 83.000 
under the 1st* Government. Aa the 
Premier Is now holding the portfolio ef 
Finance, which carries with It the sal- 
ary of $6,000, It would appear that be 
will either later give up that portfolio 
or accept the $7,600 for Premier and 
draw no salary for the office of Minister 
of Finance. It la hardly to be expected 
that he would draw both earns to an 
aggregate of $12,600. The salary of 
secretary to the Premier has been cut 
from $21$ to $160 per month. The sal- 
ary of the Deputy Minister of Finance. 
Mr. Qoosel, bss been Increased from 
$3,670 to $4,200, and that ef the AodMor-

The pack, howevjot ?a valued 'at $10.- 
721,818. as against S8.0W.835 for that 
of 1815. The decrease In the pack la 
attributed to tbo smallest run yet re- 
corded on tho Fraser and to a poor sea- 
son In the North. Tho run to the 
northern waters was not disappointing, 
and since tho spawning area of the 
northern rivers and inlets have been 
shown to have been abundantly seeded 
In previous years, the poor run Is at- 
tributed to unfavorable conditions on tho 
feeding grounds in tho open sea.

against this, shortage of labor, difficulty

Its freshness and merit. It starts out

Is, British Columbia will have every op- 
portunity of doing an Important export 
trade when the tonnage situation Is re- 
established. Sdch trade was particular- 
ly desirable as a stabilising Influence, so 
that the Coast industry msy be less de- 
pendent upon tho Canadian Prairie mar- 
ket. For the past year, however, the 
Prairie demand has been most satisfac- 
tory, while shipments to Eastern Can- 
ada were double those of the year be- 
fore. Persistent effort Is made by the 
Provincial Government to advertise the 
merits of British Columbia forest pro- 
duets and tq assist manufacturers who 
are entering new markets. 

Including nearly 8180,000 from the 
taxation derived from tho crown grant 
timber lands, tha Province drew from 
forest sources In ISIS a revenue of |8,- 
' 000,000, which Is slightly In excess of 
the amount for ISIS. For the coming 
fiscal year the direct forest revenue, 
apart from such taxation, is estimated 
at 82.300,000, an amount Including vari- 
ous royalty arrears which aro now being 
called In. The Improved outlook Is 
shown by the fact that last month's 
forest revenue was the largest since 
the war began, while tho collection for 
tho month from both royalties and tim- 
ber sales broke all previous records.** 

Apart from dangerous periods In 
Spring and Autumn, general weather 
conditions during last Summer oreated 
the least fire hazard since ISIS. Such 
damage to timber and property as oc- 
curred was mostly In the northern dis- 
tricts. Considerable changes sre being 
carried out In organising forest protec- 
tion. Representatives of tho logging, 
lumbering, shingle and licence holders' 
associations have been Included in 
boards established for tho Coast and In- 
terior sections respectively, and a sys- 
tematic effort made to secure the best 
possible personnel for tho forest protec- 
tion force by means of examinations 
that have been held at a number of cen- 
tres throughout the Province. While 
this hss entailed considerable work (no 
less than 105 applicants having taken 
the examination st one centre, and the 
total number examined being several 
hundreds) It Is felt that a very valu- 
able principle has thus been Introduced, 
for tho first time In Canada, In the 
method of making appointments in a 
field organisation to which civil service 
regulations are not easily applied.

The total 'value of mineral output to 
the end of ISIS was roughly SS5S.500.000. 
The total output for the year 1916 was 
nearly MI. 300,000, sn Increase of 44 per 
cent over tho preceding year. The out- 
put from metalliferous mining In ISIS 
was valued at nearly 1 2 1,000,000. while 
In ISIS It was over SS2.O0O.S00, an In- 
crease ever the preceding year of about 
SI 1.000,000, or S4 per cant, while, aa 
compared with the former record of 
1012, the Increase is 7S per cent. 

While some of this enormous increase 
in value Is undoubtedly duo to tha 
higher market value of tho metals, yet 
to each of tho metals, exoept gold, there 
has boon a largely Increased quantity 
produced. Of the more Important 
economic metals lead, the output of

to expect that saeh wilt continue

slstent demand for Increased food pro- 
ducts. That thsy have well done their 
duty is evident in tho fact that the 
value of farm products for 1014 
amounted to 132/250,157. or an Increase 
of Sl.lSl.Sot over 1015. Prices for 
practically all products of the farm in 
ISIS were considerably In excess of 
those prevailing the previous year. 
and, therefore, whilst tho value of 
farm production showed an Increase, 
actual production showed a slight fall- 
ing off. 

The scarcity of efficient farm help 
and the high price of labor have 
proved deterrent factors to Increased 
production. There has been very little 
tend clearing done, owing to high 
price of labor and . excessive cost of 
stumping powder, as a result of the 

The backward Spring, followed by a 
cold, dry Summer, greatly lessened 
crop production In the coast, districts, 
Central British Columbia and the Peace 
River country, and all farm crops 
were. In consequence, considerably be- 
low normal. More favorable conditions, 
however, existed In the Southern In- 
terior portions of the Province, where 
crops were, on the whole, good. 

The crop of tree fruits was gener- 
ally good, and showed an increase of 
over twenty-five per cent over 1915. 
Small fruits were light, and consider- 
able damage was done by adverse 
weather conditions at shipping time. 
Dairying shows very satisfactory pro- 
gress, several co-operative creameries 
having started during the year. A 
marked revival has taken place In the 
poultry industry, prices for all poultry 
products having materially Increased. 

Better co-operative methods In the 
marketing of farm produce are now be- 
ing adopted by the farmers and better 
farming methods are being practiced. 
This is evident in the Improvement in 
the quality of stock kept, and (he In- 
crease In crop yields.

Esquimalt Will Have No Com- 
putsory Vaccination, but 
Sanitation Will Be Improved), 
Following Recommendations. 

Taking the stand that it had no 
power to enforce ouch a recommenda- 
tion, the Esquimau Municipal Council 
last night decided to take no action on 
the compulsory vaccination Issue, al- 
though It waa urged to do so by Health 
Officer K. W. Book, M.D Tho Council 
agreed with Dr. Beak, however, that 
greater precautions should bo taken in 
a general way in guarding the muni- 
cipality against the spread of the 

Dr. Book Informed tho Council that 
In several sections of tho district 
householders had neglected to connect 
up their pipes with the sewer mains, 
with tho result that epidemics of 
measles and less serious disease were 
rampant in these localities. On Juno 
Street, he pointed out, conditions wore 
particularly bad and tenants hsd been 
forced to leave their houses on acooant 
of the foul odors from unconnected 
cesspools snd surface drains. Somo 
householders had been given thirty 
days' notice to connect up, and in sev- 
eral cases these orders had been dis- 
regarded. Dr. Boak felt that pressure 
should be brought to bear on these In- 

Should Boport Disease 

The Importance of having all cases 
of disease Immediately reported to tbo 
health, authorities was also alluded to 
by Dr. Boak, who cited an example of 
where a family living on Phoenix 
Street had three children Invalided with 
measles. No report was given of the 
outbreak: the children associated with 
neighbors, who In turn contracted ill- 
ness. A woman resident on Lyall 
Street had absolutely refused the uu- 

complaint that there was a child In- 
side suffering from measles. A health 
certificate was demanded, and this also 
was refused. When the medical au- 
thorities, with a constable from tho 
municipal force, finally entered the 
place by force under full legal author- 
ity, It was found that the child had 
been taken away and the people in 
the house stolidly refused to give any 
Information as to Its whereabouts. 
The house was eventually fumigated, 
but the child was still gone. Dr. Boak 
recommended that an example should 
be made of this case, and In this he 
had the full support of the Council, 
although nothing definite was done last 
night In tho matter. 

Dr. Boak further reported that two 
more cases of scarlet fever had devel- 
oped among the sailors In the Navy 
Tard, and the Isolation Hospital being 
now full, they had to be taken to tho 
Canteen Grounds. There were now 
about 84 cases of measles In the 
municipality, but there was evidence 
that the epidemic was abating and few 
serious Cases had so far been re- 

Should Close School 

He advised that the Esquimau 
School, Uimpson Street, should be clos- 
ed until May 1. This recommendation, 
he said, had been given the School 
Board, but It had not acted. It was 
far better, be said, for the children te 
miss a week at school now than three 
weeks at a later date, as would be the 
case If they contracted measles. 

Referring to the question of com- 
pulsory vaccination. Dr. Boak men- 
tioned that this course had been adopt- 
ed by Oak Bay and It was befng con- 
templated by the city. Forty-seven 
cases of disease, he explained, had been 
examined at the Quarantine Station 
during the past few weeks among Chi- 
nese Immigrants and there were four 
cases of smallpox among them. There 
was a necessity for protecting the peo- 
ple of the municipality as far as pos- 
sible, and he, therefore, suggested that 
the Council should follow in the steps 
of Oak Bay. 

Oppose Compulsion 

Councillor Bridle favored this, but 
the Idea found strong opposition In 
Councillors CaOB and Meshcr, both of 
whom declsred that they had certain 
objections to vaccination snd would 
under no clrcumttsnces allow their own 
children to be g\v«n the treatment. 

Dr. Boak eninavored to point out 
the advantages <f vaccination, hut hfs 
arguments fails* to change their at- 
titude, f

Mr. Frank Kermode Addressed 
Inaugural Meeting of Bird 
Branch of Natural History 
Society— War on Cats. 

Member, of tho Victoria Natural Wa- 
tery Society, especially interested la 
blrda met In the Society's room la the 
Jones Black, laat night, to inaugurates 
bird branch of the parent society. Dr. 
Hssell was elected president of tho 
branch society, Mr. H. F. Fullon vice- 
president, asm My. J. A. Cunningham. 

After tho business of appointing- of- 
ficers had been disposed of. the mem- 
bers present listened to a very inter- 
eating, Informal talk by Mr. Frank Ker- 
mode, curator at the provincial museum, 
on the indigenous game birds and wild- 
fowl ef British Columbia. Mr. Ker- 
mode brought with him epectmeas of all 
these birds, which were arranged on the 
table around which the members sat, and 
he had aomething Interesting to ssy 
about ealh, pointed out the variations 
la coloring and plumage of the varieties 
of the same bird found, in different dis- 
tricts of the Province, 

Included among the specimens was 
one of the passenger pigeon, a bird 
which until quite recent years was 
found In countless thousands through- 
out North America, but which is now 
extinct. Mr. Kermode pointed out tho 
difference In plumage between this bird 
and the band-tailed pigeon, which oc- 
curs in British Columbia, and the dove, 
and expressed the opinion that all the 
reports sent In of slleged passenger 
pigeons seen In British Columbia were 
really due to mistaken identity. He was 
emphatic In hia statement of the belief 
that the passenger pigeon had n.tver 
been found west of the Rockies. 

Mr. Kermode expressed grave fear 
for the future of the "willow** or ruf- 
fed grouse of the country. As tho coun- 
try became settled up these grouse will 
bo driven from their natural haunts in 
the bottom lands, and, unless they prov- 
ed capable of adapting themselves In 
the changed conditions due to civilisa- 
tion's Inroads Into their natural habitat, 
were doomed to extinction. 

The Predatory One 

Following the examination of the 
skins, several subjects" were discussed, 
huvlng a bearing on bird life, prominent 
among which was the question of cats 
and the damage they do among blrda of 
town and country. Mr. Kermode 
brought this matter very forcibly to 
the noUce of the members, and at hla 
request a committee waa formed to back 
up the efforts of the parent society, 
which Is trying. In co-operation with 
the 8. P. C. A., to Interest the City 
Council In the matter. Speaking on this 
question, Mr. Kermode wan very em- 
phatic in hia denunciation of the fells 
domeatlcus. He aald that the amount of 
damage done among birds by stray cats 
wss enormous, snd asserted that once a 
cat gave its attention to catching birds, 
It would never again make any attempt 
to catch rats or mice. In any case, 
anyone with any Intelligence and a tew 
traps could do more execution among 
these vermin In twenty-four hoors than 
a cat would do In a week. In addition, 
the cat la one of the worst animals for 
carrying dlseaae, and he seriously main- 
tained that eats were largely respon- 
sible for spreading the recent epidemic 
of measles. 

Another Interesting point touched en 
by the speaker of the evening was the 
question of damage done to crops by 
birds. He maintained that, If only those 
Who accused the birds of, mischief knew 
the whole subject thoroughly, they 
would admit thst in the vast majority 
of cases when msklng their sccusatlona 
they bad seen only one side, and that 
the birds almost Invariably did more 
good to the farmer than harm, and 
among tho birds he Included the game 
birds, such as pheasants and quail. 
Za Paver of Treaty 

Mr. Kermode devoted considerable 
time to explaining the provisions of the 
migratory birds treaty recently made 
between the United States and Canada 
and gave It his unqualified approval 

He thought that much of the criti- 
cism leveled against It by sportsmen 
came through a misapprehension, and 
explained that under its terms, although 
the sportsmen of British Columbia 
would only be allowed fourteen weeks- 
open season for shooting wildfowl, they 
did not necessarily have to take those 
fourteen weeks at ths earns time as 
other Canadian Provinces, but at any 
time between September 1 and March 
10. He believed that. If the terms of 
the treaty were acted up to, It would 
the tresty wer" acted upp to. It would 
moan that there would bo n very rapid 
increaao in the bird life of the whole 

It was arranged that the bird branch 
should meet again on Monday week, 
when Dr. Hasell will give an address 
on some of the sparrows.

Realizes Nature of His 

• Charges and What Will Re- 
sult if Proved Unfounded, 

la Seat lege en 

"One of \iB*im a rogue or the other Is 
an Irresponsible fool, a local paper has 
aald. That Is a very fair, representation 
of the situation. It Is a fair expreaaton 
of my own opinion. I think I wlir leavo 
the question with that." aald Mr. J. 8. 
Cowper. M.P.P., before ths Libersl 
League In the Labor Temple st Vancou- 
ver on Saturday svenlng In dlacuaslng 
the charges recently made by himself 
in the Houae in connection with Hon. 
M. A. Jfaodonald. Attorney-General. 

Mr. Cowper gave hla audience of some 
154 persons to understand tha£ he 
clearly appreciated the consequences of 
hia charge*. 

"Nobody appreciate* more than I tho 
consequences that will entail upon my- 
self if certain accusationa I have made 
turn out to bo unfounded," he said. 

"But, I sm not losing any sleep; I 
sm not worrying over the remarks 
shout an 'interesting specimen In the 
zoological gardens.' If I were free to 
talk this evening I could tell you a lot 
of Interesting things." 

Continuing, Mr. Cowper referred to 
the statement to the effect that he had 
"political murder In hla heart" He de- 
clared the chances were that the man 
who made that statement would be 
placed In the witness stand before they 
were through, "snd I wsger he will tell 
the truth," ho said, amid spplause. 

"If the tribunal that la to be appoint- 
ed discovers that the Attorney-General 
has been ss hs professes to be, and If 
It shall prove that I have been an Ir- 
responsible fool. I think I will have 
enough decency to say that a good man 
who had been under a oloud has been 
shown to be right. But, I want to as- 
sure you thst I don't think I have been 
an Irresponsible fool." 

West Witnesses Sromght Seek 

The masting pessed a resolution st 
the elose culling upon the Government 
to take active step* la connection with 
the Faclfte Great Eastern scandal. The 
resolution set forth that evidence «#f wit- 
nesses had conclusively shown that 
largo same ef money had been misap- 
propriated In connection with the con- 
struction of the Pacific Greet Kestsrn, 
that It was essentially In tho Interests 
of the people to bring to Justice the 
persons who had left tho Jurisdiction, 
sad It called on the Government to In- 
stitute criminal proceedings sgslnst the 
persons responsible for the fronds snd 
to extradite those persons who had fled. 
It was carried unanimously. 

Mr. W. It BonnycasUe. electrical en- 
gineer, opened the meeting by giving an 
Instructive talk on the question ef 
sveUnble British v.olumbl* water pow- 
ers. Ms stated that there wss SOA.eee 
horsepower available within reach ef 
the city, though In order to develop this 
power It would be necessary to con- 
atruct seven or eight plants, and some 
of the power would be too expensive to 
develop. However, he estimated that 
240,404 horsepower could be developed 
et a moderate cost, producing moder- 
ately cheap power. 

la esnisjsnclsg Me addr e ss , Mr. Cow- 
par seated that the application of the 
cKy for aathoiity to develop power far 
sets la the etty bad bean revised la the 
setvatn bills fissssHlss by a asajui4ry 
of eon. Bat the 

a Pisco fnB Of ewrprtsos and R 

to. When the power .matter came be- 
fore the House the Vancouver members 
and other Independent members might 
be able to revise some of the things the 
private bills committee had done. 
A Peculiar gltuatton 

In connection with the radilc Great 
Eastern revelations in the' House, Mr. 
Cowper aald they had aaddened the 
members. It was a peculiar situation 
whsn one found eubstsntial citlaena 
fleeing by night. He hoped the people 
would not soon forget the lesson. He 
expressed 4he hope that the' arm of 
public opinion would reach out snd that 
some messures would be token which 
would ensure that more of the wonder- 
ful stories which have not yet been 
fully told would he brought to light 

Dealing with his recent charges, Mr. 
Cowper said that if . anybody thought 
anything be had done In thla connection 
had been done lightly they did not un- 
derstand the situation. He disavowed 
any suggestion what he had done, 
thought or expressed, had been even In 
the slightest way motived by Ill-will fo> 
any man. Those In the audience knew 
that no man had worked harder in the 
by-election of last February than had 
he himself. He had then worked for the 
return of the present Attorney-Oenersl, 
conceiving it to be his duty. Sines thst 
time, never had he taken any action to- 
ward that gentleman which ' had not 
been through sny motives but the best. 
He had no malice In his heart toward 
the Attorney-General. 

Dr. Mclntoah, M.P.P., In referring to 

the alteration* In the city's power 
amendment, stated that while they had 
been beaten In the private bills com- 
mittee, there would be a light on the 
floor of the House. He hoped that a 
majority of the legialators would sea, 
that tho shackle* which bound the elty 
must be removed. 

On ths taxation relief scheme, he had 
opposed the measure as a matter of 
principle on the ground thst tbs slak- 
ing fund moneys were sacred and 
should In no Wlss be touched, svsn for 
ths purpose of helping the eitlsens with 
their taxes. 

In connection with the oharges made 
by Mr. Cowper, Dr. Mcintosh said hs 
could possibly tell more about them 
than Mr. Cowper were It permissible, 
for he hsd been unfortunately placed 
in the position of a confidante by a cos* 
tain person In authority In the Prov- 
ince. Thla confidence he would not 
break unless it becams his absolute 

"It was unfortunate," he continued, 
that the Provincial Houae wss dealing 
with such things Instead of handling 
ths big problem* which wore facing 
the Province. 

"Tho local members wars watching 
things in Victoria," he continued. "They 
were not taking any chancsa If one 
hod to leave ths House ths other re- 
mained, for there was always the 
chance of one question being adjourned 
and another taken up."

Chairman of Relief Committee 
Reports That Situation Has 
Become *Very Grave — Na- 
tive Food Is Scarce. 

NEW YORK. April IS.— Tta Commls- 
• eion for* r«ll«f In Beldam made public 
Unlgbt a cablegram from Emll« Franc- 
<jui, acting chairmen of the Bel«len Na- 
tional committee, la which the situation 
In Belgium wee described ae "very 
•rave." . 

"Native food" are ■cerce." he message 
asserted, "and ninety-nine per eeat of 
the population are reduced to the ration 
of Imported food, • which Is - absolutely 
insufficient. So I Implore you to help 
we and to Increaee the Importation of 
general foods." 

Kong-sii's Cargo 

LONDON, April 23.— The American 
eommlaiilon for relief in Belgium haa 
learned that the relief ehip Kongsll haa 
arrived in port, and It Is expected ttaree- 
fcurthe of the cargo wlH be aaved. All 
of the crew except the eecond mate wee 
aaved. The eecond mate ,le missing. 
Officers of the ship state that the ves- 
sel wae undoubtedly torpedoed, although 
a submarine wae not eeen. The attack, 
they aay, occurred In the so-called safety 
lone. In a district where no mines have 
been previously encountered. 



Aldermen DUworth and Sargent last 
night endeavored to get the members 
of the City Council to reverse their de- 
cision of last Friday and refuse to per- 
mit Mr. M. Cots worth to. hold, a public 
meeting in the City Hall some time 
soon to speak on the high cost of liv- 
ing and other things. The majority of 
the Council refused to change their 
stung", however. 

"If this man is the Moses Cotsworth 
of newspaper fame that we have been 
hearing for the last two or three 
years we don't want anything to do 
with him in the City Hall here," said 
Alderman DUworth. "We don't want 
any agitator like this man around here 
to air bis views. Ae far as I can find 
out be is not like the original Moses 
with his love of country. This gent Is 
out for the love of his own pocket, 
n6t the people. Thle man hae been al- 
together too publicly known as an agi- 
tator. If this man Is so patriotic and 
has such wonderful ability at reducing 
the cost of living, why doesn't he start 
In his own town. 1 have never heard 
of him reducing the cost of living even 
in Vancouver where he lives, where 
the cost is greater than in Victoria." 

Since last Friday I have found out 
that. this gentleman Is the author of a 
pamphlet known as 'The Crisis in 
B.C,'" aaid Alderman Sargent. "The 
Municipal Council will do well to keep 
clear of him and his politics. It appears 
to me that this scheme is rather a way 
of giving him an entry Into the good 
graces of the people of this city. We 
Hhoiild not lend ourselves to any such 
propaganda. If he were a man vrltb 
scientific knowledge along the tines of 
the high coat of living-, -t would hold up 
my hands for him. But we don't want 
to get mixed up in politics. He la an en- 
tertaining gentleman and figures very 
high In politics. Let him go to some 
other hall where he can say what he 
wants. He couldn't speak here without 
giving thinga a political bias." 

Aldermen Fullerton, Johns and Peden 
were In favor of letting Mr. Cotsworflt 
apeak, .as he might do something to 
bring down the cost of living. "It would 
do no harm and It might do a great 
deal of good to stir up this question," 
said Alderman Johns. 

"We have no right to assume that 
this Mgses can't leave politics alone 
even for one night," said Alderman 
Walker. "If he Is one of these men 
that has a ruling passion, I think wo 
will be able to find out before he does 
any harm on the platform." 


Prof. Arthur A. Cole Ogers Advlee to 

Caaadmae in aa Address Delivered 

At Montreal 

Canada must not think of herself aa 
an agricultural country only, but also 
as land of vast mineral resources, con- 
cluded Arthur A. Cole, president of the 
Canadian Mining Institute, In address- 
ing the Natural History Society at 
Montreal a few daye ago on "The Min- 
eral Wealth of Canada." 

Pointing out that Quebec and Ontario 
were dependent on Pennsylvania for 
their coal, Mr. Cole said that water 
power and peat beds must be developed 
so that if It should prove impossible to 
get Pennsylvania coal for a time, the 
factories of theae two provinces would 
not be forced to cloae down. Coal In 
Canada was found In Nova Scotia and 
British Columbia only. 

Last year with a total output of 
$21,000,000 worth of nickel In Sudbury, 
$10,000,000 had been spent In wagee 
and supplies. And with the establish- 
ment of the proposed refining process 
In Canada, output would be tncressed 
by millions of tons In the great campa 
at Sudbury, Porcupine and Cobalt. 

Since tJOa an average of two tone 
of ellver had been produced each day 
at * Cobalt, and the total output wea 
worth $135,000,000. The yearly wage 
bill at Cobalt waa And 
because Canadian smelters were now 
reSnlng the area of this district, by- 
products were being used to advan- 
tage. Formerly this business had gone 
to the United Statee.

OTTAWA, April $$.— The Canadian" 
Northern Railway Company on Its own 
behalf ' placed In the hands of the Do- 
muuon Govern ment a report en the af- 
falrs of the company. «j» 

It is the work of John W. Platten. 
president of the United States Mort- 
gage & Trust Company, of Mew Tork, 
and of Edward E. Loom Is, president of 
the Lehigh valley Railway Company, 
and formerly vice-president and gen- 
eral manager of the Delaware & Lacka- 
wanna Railway. They have been as- 
sited by a New York fir mof consult- 
ing engineers, Coverdale and Colpitis. 

The American experts state that they 
have been engaged | for the last year 
upon an examination of the Canadian 
Northern and indicate that they have 
studied Its location, its equipment, tta 
cost and financing, the business which 
it has developep and Its prospects for 
future business, aa well as the im- 
provements required. The report de- 
clares that with a programme of Im- 
provements carried out, the Canadian 
Northern can be made a great success. 
Two plans are proposed for this. The 
first Is a minimum programme, to be 
carried out In three years at a net 
cash outlay of $54,000,000, and the sec- 
ond, which is described as a maximum 
plan, would require five years and 

The Americans In their report speak 
well of the system as It Is' today, but 
insist upon considerable improvements. 
Its present position Is stated as similar 
to that of the Canadian Pacific and the 
Northern Pacific Just after those lines 
had been built to the Pacific Coast, but 
rather better, as other railways have 
established the Canadian West as a 
great agricultural field, have installed a 
population there, enabling cities to be 
built and ocean ports to be opened.

The City Council last night decided 
that the reductions in fire insurance 
rates proposed by the Vancouver Island 
Fire Underwriters' Association are 
quite inadequate and unsatisfactory. 
The Mayor explained that instead of a 
genera] reduction for the whole city, for 
which the aldermen have been asking 
because of the email fire loss and the 
costly equipment and protection pro- 
vided, the underwriters are offering only 
a reduction from fifty to forty feet In 
the exposure charge for dwellings, 
schools, churches and similar rlska The 
saving In premiums would be 916,000 to 
property owners. 

The Mayor said the underwriters had 
tried to create the Impression In the 
newspapers during the last week that 
they were meeting the wishes of the 
cltiaens and giving them a generous re- 

The underwriters last night sent the 
Council a note haying that a change waa 
to be made in the caaes mentioned, but 
gave no details. 

"This is a very Indefinite letter as far 
as It goes." said Alderman I'ullerton. 
chairman of the fire wardens. "Surely 
It la not an official communication for 
the Council. It is evading altogether 
the queetlon raised last year by the 
committee of aldermen seeking a reduc- 
tion. Thle letter means nothing. It 
doesn't give amounts or anything of the 
nature of the reductions." 

Alderman Sargent also declared the 
result was not satisfactory. 

The City will ask the underwriters to 
give out details of tho reductions before 
taking further action.

An organisation known as the British 
Cattle Supply Company has recently 
been incorporated with a view to en- 
couraging an increased production of 
cattle, so that the British Government 
need not be dependent on American pro- 
ducers for their supply. The new asso- 
ciation Is an outgrowth of the National 
Livestock Association. The national 
executive of this association, composed 
of Hon. Duncan Marshall, Minlater of 
Agriculture of Alberta; Hon. Peter Tal- 
bot, of Alberta; Hon. Nelson Mont el th 
and Mr. Mcllroy, M.P.P. for Carleton. 
•re all actively associated with the new 

The British Cattle Supply Company 
waa originally Incorporated in March 
last, with a capitalisation of $2,500,000. 
Since that date, however, tho scope of 
the undertaking has been materially en- 
larged, and, at a recent meeting of the 
directorate, it was decided to increase 
the capitalisation of the association to 
$6,000,000. The official government en- 
donation of this increase was given on 
April ». • ■ 

The stock of the association is di- 
vided into 60,000 shares of $100 each. 
The great proportion of this stock has 
already been assumed by members of 
the executive and others closely asso- 
ciated with tho livestock industry. The 
balance of stock approximating $1,000,- 
000 will be placed on the open market at 
as early a date as possible, probably 
within the next two weeks. Shares arc 
being issued at par, 40 per cent upon 
allotment, $0 per cent in one year, and 
30 per cent in eighteen months. 

Already this association controls 4!'2,- 
000 acres of land, mostly in Alberta, 
part of which is actually owned and 
part held under lease. This will be 
largely increased by three large areas 
In the new Ontario belt The associa- 
tion has been granted this land under 
lease, and It only remains for a com- 
mittee of the association that has not 
yet been appointed to look over the 
available land -and make its selection. 

It is understood that the landB 
leased, both In Ontario and Alberta, are 
held at a merely nominal rental, 6 cents 
an acre being the amount suggested. 
. Purpose of Association 

The purpose of the association is to 
place on the land as soon as possible 
SO',000 head of breeding cattle. This, of 
course, will take some considerable 
time, as such a number of suitable cat- 
tle are not Immediately available. All 
arrangements are being made, however, 
with the idea of providing for financing 
this immense project, as well as for 
the handling, care and feeding of the 
cattle when received. As the officials 
of the stockyard at Montreal, Winnipeg 
and Toronto are on the directorate of 
the association, it is an indication that 
this projected purchase will be expedited 
as much as possible. 

The new association is already in ac- 
tive operation; a number of ranches 
formed by the National Livestock As- 
sociation have been sold to the new 
association. These ranches are thor- 
oughly- stocked, and form a satisfactory 
nucleus for the larger activities of the 

The idea behind the Bcheme Is to put 
Canada on the cattle-breeding map. 
Enormous tracts of land are available 
for pasturage, and It is felt that the 
assistance that Canada has been to the 
Mother Country in this line of recent 
date has not measured up to her possi- 
bilities. It was recently stated ;n the 
British Parliament that since November 
Canada had. exported only 10,000 tons of 
frozen meat, which Is a mere nothing 
in the face of the enormou.3 demand. 

Another activity of the company — 
that which Is partially responsible for 
the increased capitalization of the <tsso- 
clatlon — Is the project to build an abat- 
toir larger than any now in operation 
In Canada, with the Idea of handling 
this end of the business. It is probable 
that this abattoir would be located In 

The directors of tho new company arc: 
President and treasurer, T. E. Good, 
manager and treasurer of the Union 
Stock Tarda, Toronto; vice-president 
and general manager of the Wm. Da- 
vies Co., and owner of the Talbot Ranch, 
Alberta. Directors: F. H. Corltn, gen- 
eral manager of the Montreal Stock 
Yards; Saul M. Boron, ex-president 
United States National .Stock Associa- 
tion; J. H. Fussell, vice-president of the 
Fussell & McReynolds Company, Toron- 
to; L. C. Lambert, manager and trea- 
surer of the Winnipeg Stock Tards; A.

How Uncle Sam Will 
Recruit His Army 

Raising armies is more difficult, as well as more important, than raising flags, and one 
of the chief difficulties in the United States is the feeling against conscription. 

"There is enough patriotism in this country to get a volunteer army, and until that is 
demonstrated untrue we should not resort to conscription," declares Senator Thomas of 
Colorado, while Senators Stone of Missouri, and Gallinger of New Hampshire are among 
those who think the recruiting problem can be best solved by increasing the .soldiers' pay. 
Among Southern congressmen also, we find opposition to universal service on the ground 
that it would be inadvisable to give thousands of negroes training in the use of arms. 
Samuel Gompers is also reported to be against conscription. 

On the other hand, a recent canvass of 476 newspapers by the National Security 
League revealed 270 of them in favor of universal military training, 49 opposed to it, and 157 

The Milwaukee Sentinel can be said to reflect the consensus of argument in favor of) 
obligatory military training: "Under the voluntary system in time of war, the serviceable 
manhood of the nation is divided into two parts. There are the patriotic young men who] 
volunteer to go to the front and, if need be, die in order that the nation may live; and there 
• are the slackers who are perfectly willing to sacrifice the other fellows on the altar of 
patriotism. That is not a democratic arrangement. A Democracy which offers equality of 
opportunity, has a right to exact in return equality of service."

'The Digest" Policy In War and Peace 

The entry of the United States into the war will 
have no effect upon the general policy of THE 
LITERARY DIGEST to give all the news from 
all sides. Every loyal American and Canadian will 
be anxious to know what the enemy is saying and 
doing, to understand his view-point, and to form 
as clear an idea as possible of the trend of public 
feeling among the nations arrayed against us. To 
the extent, then, that this is compatible with the 

interests of the country, THE DIGEST will con- 
tinue to print the news, from whatever point it 
may come, holding it to be the desire of every true 
patriot to know the exact situation. To crystallize 
the view-point of the day in all lands, including 
our own, and to present it as accurately as possible 
to the reader, is the aim, now as ever, of this fore- 
most of news-magazines. Read it and judge the 
result for yourself. '

Demands on Institution In- 
creasing — Dr, Price Would 
Hire Man and Wife to Re- 
duce Expenses, 

The City Council, on the recommenda- 
tion of Medical Health OfNcet X>r. 
Price, last night, decided on the reor- 
ganisation of the isolation Hospital, 
after a further report giving mors de- 
tails is submitted. 

Dr. Price etatea that the present staff, 
consisting of a nursing matron, an as- 
sistant who acta as cook and does no 
nursing, and a man engaged as care- 
taker, has been quite inadequate to meet 
the demands of the hospital. It Is 
found necessary frequently or almost 
continuously to engage the services of 
outelde nurses at a salary of 930 a 
week, and keep. In order to efficiently 
nurse the city cases. 

At present there are an abnormal 
r.umber of cases under treatment In the 
hospital: 7 city indigent cane* of dlp- 
tiierla. and 4 suspect cases, occupying 
one department, with two nurses spe- 
cially engaged: t cases of scarlet fever, 
occupying another department, being 
nursed by one matron and a special 
nurse; 7 case* of measles, nursed by 
tr-ree special nurses. The measles and 
the 5 scarlet fever are not city Indi- 
gent casea. and are liable for payment 
of expenses. 

During 1»1« the fees for extra nurs- 
ing amounted to $901.01. and this year, 
owing to an epidemic, the cost will be 

Dr. Price asks that th* matron con- 
tinue aa at present, that there bo an as- 
sistant nurse engaged permanently, 
who, when her time is not fully occu- 
pied at the hospital, shall visit city In- 
digent cases at their homes, and that 
there be a man and wife appointed, the 
wife to do all the cooking and help 
in house work, aad tbo man to do all 
outdoor caretaklng. gardening and gen-

Survey of G.T.P. Steamer In 
Drydock Was Completed 
Yesterday— Will Require 42 
New Plates and Otherfiepairs 

The surrey of the Grand Trunk Pa- 
cific itNMr Priaee Rupert, which 1mm 
b*w Orydocked at Eequtmelt following 
the arrival Of, the veaael here from Oenn 
laland. where she stranded March ft, 
•b«*wu Seated tost Prater morning, 
was computed yesterday. 

noughly speaking. 42 new ptatea will 
be needed. while a good many plates will 
bar* to be removed and t erred and 
others farred on. Thla covers the moat 
important Mature of the repair work, 
but there ere a greet many minor mat- 
ters which will have to be attended to, 
which will also entail much work. 

Looking down on the vessel yesterday 
aa ahe rested on tha keel blocks la the 
graving basin oae would hardly sup- 
pose that tba vessel' had suffered so se- 
verely, but an going down onto the floor 
«f the drydock It was surprising to see 
how much damage had been dont to the 
hull of the palatial vessel which only 
recently had been overhauled In the 
same drydock and put In flrai-clasa con- 

About twenty feet from the bow on 
tha port side was the plaes where the 
first pinnacle of rock pierced the ves- 
sel as she plunged ashore during the 
furious gale and snowstorm which, raged 
on the night of March 23. Back of that 
tha hull resembles a huge washboard 
whare the plates are buckled up In great 
waves, and in three other places the ves- 
sel's bull waa pierced by the rocks, one 
hole being almost large enough for a 
person to crawl througtu 

The damage does not extend far up 
but It oovetg almost the entire bottom 
of tha boat. Different estimates as to 
the length of time required for tha re- 
pair work have been made but the gen- 
oral opinion to that It will take about 
two mouths and a half. 

Ma time to being lost, and no sooner 
had the steamer been left high and dry 
yesterday than a large gang of men were 
sat to work by Yarrows Limited, who 
have tha repairing of the veaael la 
hand. Capt. C. H. Nicholson, manager 
of tha O.T.P. steamship service, and 
Capt. A. P. Macfarlane, of the London 
Salvage Association, both of whom have 
been at the scene of tha stranding ever 
since tha uafartuaate occurrence, came 
south on the Prince* Rupert. 

The B.C. Salvage steamer Salvor, Capt. 
T. Thomson, Is back at her dock In the 
Inner Harbor, she having accompanied 
the Prince Rupert south, stopping off 
at Ladysmlth on the way to coal.

ver for Russian Navy—Will 
Be of Large, Powerful Type, 

Considerable Interest in taken in Van- 
couver's latest -acquisition In the way 
of shipbuilding contracts, particulars of 
which have Just boon announced. 

Mr. J. V. Pateraon. of Seattle, former 
president of tho Seattle Construction * 
Dry Dock Company and one of tho best 
known shipbuilders and marina archi- 
tect* on the Pacific Coast, has closed 
contrasts to build sin submarine* for 
tha Russian Government an private 
terms. Tha work will be done at a 
plant which Mr, Paterson has built in 
Vancouver, and actual construction of 
tho submarines waa started yesterday 
morning. Materials far all of tho half 
dosen are already on tho ground and 
the plant Is practically completed, with 
a force of ltd man now working. This 
fore* win bo Increased immediately to 
••4 men. as. while tho definite dates of 
delivery of tho vossols are not given out, 
Mr. Pateraon states that they are want- 
ed as quickly aa possible. 

The order for the submarines Ja tho 
largest for war vessels for a foreign 
power yet placed on tho raclflo Coast 
and Is believed to be the only one now 
pending In Northern yards. A year and 
a half ago Mr. Pateraon built Ave sub- 
merlnes for the Allies, but ha states 
that those later craft are af a larger 
and more powerful type than the former 

Tho Harrison Direct Line freight 
steamship. Senator. Capt. Dunn, arrived 
In the Royal Roads on Sunday night 
from the United Kingdom, and at 1 
o'clock yesterday morning she drew up 
alongside tho Outer Docks. 

The Senator Is the latest addition to 
tho Harrison fleet, and this Is her maid- 
en voyags. Sha brought a full cargo of 
general freight and made the voyage by 
way of the Panama Canal, calling at 
San Pedro and Son Francisco on her 
way op tho Coast. 

Officers of the vessel report an un- 
eventful trip, if anything can be called 
uneventful that passes through tho war 
soae, and they apparently thought noth- 
ing of having faced the dangers of Gor- 
man submarines which have had for 
their victims many of the Harrison Line 
ships. In fact, it la such vossols aa the 
Harrison freighters that tho Gorman 
submarine commanders keep an espe- 
cially good look-out for. \ 

While In port, ths Senator discharged 
110 tons of general merchandise. 

Dissatisfied with the proportion of 
shipbuilding being done by Victoria and 
Esquimau cesapaates. tho business men 
of tho city havn decided to saake an In- 
vastigattoa Into utoe causes of tho pree- 
ent situation w1t& view to having it 
Immediately rellevm 

Victoria's position as a shipbuilding 
centre win bo a topic for discussion at 
next Friday's meeting of the Council 
of tho Board Of Trade. It to indicated 
that the Board of Trade believes that, 
if certain obstacles were removed, this 
port could secure a much larger ehare 
of shipbuilding: contracts than it has 
la tho past, and It will make aa earnest 
attempt at doing whatever Is In Its 
power to have these conditions altered 
so that tho Industry may be given every 
opportunity of expansion. It to diffi- 
cult to say what form the board's ac- 
tion will take, but it Is said that atten- 
tion will be given to a proposal to or- 
ganise a now company, highly capital- 
ized, and capable of handling any order 
that may possibly bo awarded to a Pa- 
cific Coast firm. The development of 
tho shipbuilding business In Seattle and 
other ports Just south of the line, to- 
gether with the rapid strides now being 
made by Vancouver In the same direc- 
tum, seems to have agitated Victoria 
cittoens to a realisation that Victoria's 
natural location and facilities are not 
being availed of to tho fullest extent. 
With tho announcement that the Do- 
minion Government and Munitions Board 
Intend launching a great wooden ship- 
building programme, placing contracts 
in whichever Canadian porta are cap- 
able of handling them, local business 
men fo ol that now to the, time for 
action. ' 

In the meantime, the president of the 
Board of Trade. Mr. James Forman, or 
tho secretary, will bo pleased to receive 
suggsstidns as to how tho situation In 
Victoria may bo Improved. 

The president will probably be ready 
to name the standing committees for 
this year by the time the meeting Is 
held. * 

Tho Vtmy Ridge Tribute la still be- 
ing accorded splendid sympathy and 
strong support by friends of the Red 
Croso Soototy. and with tba addition 
of ths receipts from the PflaoreseDay

handsome eum of, only a few

ing theatre were made by Mr. C. i".

sponsible for the artistic decorations 
In the spacious rooms, which Wore 
tilled with exQUislto Spring flowers, 
among which the beautiful native wild 
illy predominated, the whole producing 
a moat delightful effect. A pleasing

All "Reethaven" was alive with fun 
041 FljNay night, when a concert party 
of li.M.C.8. Rainbow entertained the re- 
turned soldiers with one of the finest 
programmes that has ever been ren- 
dered since "Resthavon" became the 
home of tho returned men from the 
front. Tho party left the city shortly 
after o'clock in a sight-seeing car and 
arrived at 'the home singing a lively 
chorus composed and sung only by the 
"Rainbows" themselves. 

Tho concert commenced promptly at 
t o'clock. Mr. Mason acted aa chair- 
man, and in his opening remarks as- 
sured ths audience that the two hours 
which were to follow would prove more 
beneficial than a dose of the- finest tonic 
that had ever been proscribed. Mr. 
Creed sang comic songs and made a de- 
cided hit as "Charlie Chaplin." causing 
heaps of fun. Mr. Craig, who followed 
Mr. Creed with a sentimental song, 
was encored. Mr. Teed made a typical 
darkey and rendered his coon songs in 
a very sble manner. Mr. Wlltcox, In 
comic selections, secured much ap- 
plause Mr. Daykln gave an exhibition 
of club-swinging and proved himself 
clover at tho gfme. Mr. Harvey'e 
"Good Luck to Barley Mo" was a mas- 
terpiece, whilst Mr. Harragtn showed 
much skill in handling the bones. Mr. 
Weeks, better known as "Teddy." was 
not behind the Umes with "I Cried Cop- 
per," and Mr. Allen, although suffering 
with a heavy cold, excelled himself as 
a ventriloquist. 

Perhaps the main event of the even- 
ing was a comic boxing sketch by Mr. 
Creed as "Charlie Chaplin" and big Tom 
Butt, ex-army and navy champion. This 
Item was a regular side-splitter. 
"Charlie" receiving a knockout blow In 
the last round. Little M1ss Duckworth 
sang well. Mrs. Gordon H. Jolliffe sang 
sentimental as well as patriotic songs. 

which wore muck enjoyed and l oud l y

for by tk« Dt- 

Already there heva been published In 
these columns excerpts from some of 
the several discussions that took plnce 
at the meeting of the Western Branch 
bf the Canadian Mining- Institute, held 
In Vancouver last month. Another one, 
probably of gene ml interest, follows: 

Dr. Edwtn T. Hodge, professor of 
geology In the University of British Co- 
lumbia, discussed In a general way some 
of the papers on Iron ores which bad 
been read, and stressed the fact that 
the greatest need of the Province of 
British Columbia at the present time Is 
an inventory of Its natural resources, 
to be accomplished mainly by means of 
an intensive geological survey. 

Ho said, "The several very Interest- 
ing papers which have been read sug- 
gest many subjects worthy of extended 
discussion. For instance, the question 
of market la of greet Importance. One 
of the apeakers oald that we ahoul* be 
able to find n market In England for a 
considerable part of our Iron ores and 
Iron billets. In view of the many de- 
posits of iron ore both larger and nearer 
to England than any wo have here, one 
Is inclined to wonder If the speaker was 
correct In hla conclusion. 

Available Bseo BltB of stagnant* 

"The highly developed magnetite de- 
posits of Gelllvarc and Klruna, In 
Northern Sweden, are fully ea rich and 
very much nearer than oura. The Wa- 
bana deposits on the north shore of 
Bell Island. Conception Bay, Newfound- 
land, are very extensive, and now In a 
high state of development. Other de- 
posits available to the British lalands 
are those of Mlnaa Geraes. Brazil, with 
reserves estimated at 2,000,000,000 tons; 
the Mayan and the Delqultl, of Cuba, 
both with great reserves; and the Bll- 
boa deposits of Spain. 

"Another market which haa been sug- 
geated is China. That country may be 
backward In acme waya, but In the In- 
vestigation of Ita natural resources It 
Is far ahead of British Columbia Its 
Oeological Survey has shown that ex- 
tensive deposits of Iron ore exist. Since 
Iron ore Is usually carried as ballast, 
and since the rule Is for the vessels to 
travel east In ballast across the Pacific, 
Is It not poaalble that the near future 
will aee China exporting Iron ore? 
Pleaae note that I am apeahing only of 
low-grade iron products and ef ores. 

"We hardly have a right to discuss 
questions of manufacture until we have 
settled the fer more Important questions 
of occurrence, quantity, availability, and 
smelting suitability of our iron ores. But 
In view of the greet advantage which 
Vancouver haa over all other cities on 
the Pacific Coast in the matter of short- 
er distance between it and Aolatlo cities, 
we ought with e proper supply of cheap 
Iron ore to become a manufacturing and 
distributing centre for Iron machinery 
or other high-grade grodncts. 

Mot* Information M«o***ar T 

"In the discussion this afternoon, sev- 
eral Iron deposits were used aa illus- 
trations of how our Iron ore deposit* 
could be developed nd smelted. This 
brings me te the crux of the whole sub- 
ject. No two of th* types ef ore men- 
tioned are alike, and It Is not certain, 
as far ea T am aware, that they are 
Identical with the types of Iron ore de- 
posits to be foond In British Columbia. 
None of our deposits, with, perhaps, one 
or two exceptions, neve Boon opened, nnd 
the problem of the type IB therefore a 
serious one. Are the deposits due to 
contact metatnorphlsea? If so, they ere 
apt to be Irregular and high In unde- 
sirable elements like sulphur and copper. 
They may be. as many contact meta- 
morphlc deposits frequently are, too 
high In copper to be good Iron ores, and 
too low In copper to ha worth mining 
as epper ores. Perhaps the depeorto era 
Irneous segregation* Igneous segnega- 
tlonr are also Irregular, and frequently 
when in roeka rich In basic felspar, ere 
too high In titanium to be smelted. 
Again the deposits may he of sediment- 
ary origin, or thay may have arisen by 
replacement In rock, or they may even 


^'Depending upon the trpe, each do- 
posit varies greatly from the other. Es- 
timations' #f tonnages hav« m moot 
case* boon b ass* upon surface showings. 
In view of the verted typos of ere de- 
posits and of the aataral difficulties,

"Thta brings me to th* topic in which 
I eaa moot Interested. Before wo can 
interest capital la our Province, wa 
must make a geological Investigation of 
our mineral resources. Our Province «a 
so vast that th* geological work which 
haa been done means but little. Our 
Provincial Government tells us that the 
Dominion Government should make our 
geological investigations. That, the 
Geological Survey of Canada la attempt- 
ing to do, but at bast they can only pot 
three geological parties Into the field 
In thi* Province each year. If we are 
to know our resources and develop tkem 
rationally, we must also bay our own 
geological survey. Our muting pros- 
perity Is dependent upon a careful snd 
systematic Investigation ef our re- 
sources along geological Unas."

M . titawirth Appeal* to Committee, fa 

Clear Ilia Imputation— Nothing 

Wrong la Refund 

Before the public account* commit- 
tee of the Legislature yesterday Mr. M. 
Cotsworth gave emphatic denial to the 
charge he alleged Mr. W. J. Bowser 
made at a political meeting In Vancou- 
ver two years ago to the effect that the 
former, while engaged In the work of 
regradlng the civil service, went to 
Quatslno ostensibly to rexrade a $30 ft 
month constable, but really to secure 
land in the name of a member of his 
family. Mr. Cotsworth challenged the 
whole lata Government and the Land 
Department to And anything Illegal he 
had done. He declared ha had not 
charged the Province the expenses of 
the trip he subsequently made to secure 
the land. On the trip to regrade the 
constable he had not made any attempt 
to secure land. He attempted on sev- 
eral occasions to criticise the former 
Government and members thereof, but 
the chairman. Mr. R A. Pauline, stopped 
htm, Informing him the committee was 

there to investigate one specific matter. 

Mr. Cotsworth denied that he got any 
pay for the days he spent on his visit 
to the lands he secured, that he had re- 
ceived no pay for holidays and had 
worked 17« days on Oovernment Busi- 
ness and received nothing. He had se- 
cured no lands Improperly. He stated 
after he had paid three Installments of 
the four he agreed to make the Govern- 
ment refused to carry out the sale. He 
proceeded to allege land frauds, but was 
cut short by the chairman. 

Before terminating his evidence Mr. 
Cotsworth made a strong appeal to the 
committee for his expenses In coming 
to Victoria and for witness fees. 

The Investigation by the committee 
into the matter of, the refund by the 
Government agent, Mr. Christie, at Ash- 
croft, of moneys paid by Mr. Andrew 
taldlaw on account of the purchase of 
lands, concerning which Hon. John 
Oliver, in the House recent!)-, charged 
that there had been falsification of the 
books of the Land Department, took on 
an entirely different aspect when Mr. 
Christie took the stand yesterday. His 
evidence Indicated it was a case where 
he had taken it for granted the depart- 
ment in Its instructions to him had 
meant one thing when It meant another. 
He confessed he was misled and he 
had understood that arrangements has 
been made with the department by 
Laldlaw for the refund. So far as he 
could see the Oovernment had the best 
of it as It had got the lands surveyed 
and the refund had gone to pay the sur- 
veyors and the money refunded had not 
gone to Laldlaw.

a society woman one day at the Acorn 
Club In Philadelphia, "among women

Council to Watt to See 
Changes Legislature 'Makes 
in Municipal Act — Mayor 
Appeals for Sale. 

to M tg m sgsss UWy 



Mayor Todd last night tried to in- 
duce the members of the City Council 
to agree to the city holding this Fall 
a tax sale of properties whloh are 
•till delinquent la 1»1X payments. Al- 
though some of the aldermen supported 
the move It was decided to let the mat- 
ter rest until the legislature has made 
Its changes to the Municipal Act. The 
last sale held in ISIS, waa of proper- 
ties delinquent in 1913. 

"Wo should have a tax sale." aald 
the mayor. "In order to run this city 
we have to have money. Someone has 
to pay it. These particular properties 
that would be put up for sale .have 
been delinquent since Itll. That was 
the year before the war. Conditions 
were good, everybody had money at 
that time and were able to pay up. 
So people who were delinquent then, 
can't plead* hard times brought on by 
the war. \ 

"All they have to do this year to 
save their property if we have a sale 
Is to pay up their 1913 taxes. Any 
person who In five years time can't 
And money to pay their taxes bad bet- 
ter let their property go. 

"I don't care what piece of property 
you like to name, if the taxes are al- 
lowed to run from year to year it be- 
comes delinquent. It will accumulate 
such a load that makes It absolutely- 
certain that the present owners will 
not pay these taxes, because it would 
not be business for them to pay them. 
"If we have a tax sale this year 
there will toe quite a number of 1813 
delinquents who will pay. If the 
city has to take over many properties 
-+t — wi ll be I n no worse positron with 
regard to them than it Is now. The 
owners in any case would have IS 
monts In which to redeem them after 
the sale. 

"The matter is more serious than 
some of the aldermen realise. It Is not 
only the delinquents of the past, but 
the delinquents that will come along 
in the . future. I am satisfied that 
nearly one-half the properties con- 
cerned are owned by every day specu- 
lators. • The mix-up in the financial af- 
fairs of the city has made it so that a 
man who has paid his taxes In full 
for the last four years has paid as 
much as he should have paid in five." 
"We should have had a tax sale 
every year." said Alderman Andros. 
"That is the only business way. The 
way we are going on Is only putting 
off the evil day. There are times when 
the banks come to the conclusion that 
delinquent taxes are not assets." 

Alderman Fullerton said the city 
would have to hold a tax sale or bor- 
row on unpaid taxes. "A majority of 
the property owners of the city are 
not in a position to meet the 1913 
..taxes," he went on. 

Alderman Cameron opposed a tax 
sale as it would be an unwise policy 
at this time to press people who are 
not in a position to pay up. It would 
be a bad advertisement for the city 
and the city would realize very little 
money on it. He declared that if the 
sale were postponed for a year condi- 
tions In Victoria might be Improved 
through the termination of the war. 

Alderman Johns declared a tax sale 
now would only add greatly to the 
burdens of the property owners and 
lessen the borrowing power of the 
city. He said the whole situation 
might be changed if peace comes with- 
in a year. 

Aldermen nil worth and Peden asked 
that the matter be left over until the 
legislature completes the changes to 
the Act, although Mayor Todd asked 
for a decision .so that property owners 
might have as long a notice as pos- 

The aldermen last night refused to 
•oil far tn« the hsstorie John Grant 
fire engine to the Great Western Junk 
Co, Which waa the only tenderer. Al- 
derman Johns said It would be a shame 
to nail the engine for that, and Alder- 
man Pullet-ton declared It waa worth 
more from an historical standpoint. An 
the aldermen thought the fire chief 
might get from M00 to $So« for It 
they placed Its sale In bis hands. 

Olarnw DuufM fee Track— Whether 
the city Is to pay for the damages to 
the light motor truck of Messrs. J. £. 
Painter St Son. sustained when the 
truck ran Into a hole as it waa coming 
off the city's scales back of the fire 
ball, is to be decided by the city en- 
gineer and the city solicitor. To re- 
Pair the truck coat $75.20. Included in 
the damage waa a broken axle which 
cost $20 to renew. The claim was pre- 
sented to the City Council leaf night. 

■Cake Wiring Safe— New wiring In 
proper conduits Is being Installed In the 
B.C. Protestant Orphans' Home at a 
cost of I486. Mr. Charles Haywhrd. 
president of the Home. Informed the City 
Council last night. This action follows 
the report of the wiring Inspector last 
November that the electric wiring there 
waa dangerous and "positively unsafe 
from a lire standpoint." The Council 
lest night granted the Home the services 
of the wiring Inspector to oversee the 

City's Mating Orders— The City

Institute was held last Thursday eve- 
ning at Temperance Hall, Keating, the

The delinquent tax committee presid- 
ed over by Alderman Andros which 
started out with such energy at the 
beginning of the year and all of a sud- 
den became quiescent Without reaching 
and definite decision, may be resurrect- 
ed. The City Council - last night In- 
structed Alderman Andros to at once 
get his committee busy again. 

This action was due to a complaint 
from Mr. W. H. Dougan that "the tax- 
payers have never been advlned as to 
what the decision of the committee was 
and what relief, if any, was arranged 
to be given to the overburdened de. 
llnqucnt taxpayers." Mr. Dougan asked 
the Council to publish the results 
achieved by the committee. 

"We had several meetings and they 
came to nothing, AMerman Andros 
explained. "I have sympathy with 
these people who are delinquent. There 
Is no doubt that there are many cases 
of hardship In the city, but no plan has 
been evolved that has met with any 

Mr. Herbert V. Lane, of 104$ Pender- 
gast Street, Informed the Council that 
he had just received charges for local 
improvements In connection with hia 
property amounting to $101.60. includ- 
ing $32.10 for an expropriation tax ow- 
ing from last year. "Is there any re- 
lief to be expected from the expropria- 
tion tax on Pendergast Street?" he 
asked. "I have always managed to pay 
my taxes up till the time this ex- 
horbitant tax was levied which does 
not benefit me In the slightest and of 
which I had no means of protesting 
against until after the assessment. I 
am a working man with a family to 
bring up. On the assessment notice it 
asks when I Intend to pay. I am utter- 
ly unable to meet the extra tax. If 
you can hold out no hope of any re- 
lief 1 must try and sell out and get 
out of the city — practically driven out 
by exhorbitant taxation." 

Mayor Todd declared that without 
doubt there had been a great Injustice 
done in the Pendergast Street section. 
"Practically all the burden Is level- 
led on two or three persons." said Al- 
derman Dilworth. "The property there 
today Is not worth what Is assessed 
against It. But I don't see how under 
the sun we can get out of It." 

Alderman Andros said that real 
estate men were to blame, as In the 
boom* days they were anxious to have 
the work done without consideration 
for the coat. He declared that the city 
engineer, being rushed, and with no 
pressure on him to keep down the 
costs, didn't care what the estimates 
amounted to. 

"I don't think the people would 
stsnd tor the city assuming the differ- 
ence between the estimated and the 
actual coot," the alderman wont on. 
"The estimates for the work that were 
made were Just nominal estimates." 

Alderman Sargent, who wee a mem- 
ber of the Council about that time, ob- 
jected agatnst a charge of "nominal 
estimates." He aald every estimate 
was made out In detail.

derman Andros will Investigate the
